Made from Lamson’s proprietary Hi-Carbon American Steel, our full-tang Vintage blades are cut, ground, polished and sharpened in our Massachusetts facilities. Handles of exotic imported hardwoods are assembled to the blades with brass rivets and then the knives are meticulously finished and sharpened.

The Vintage Series features an updated ergonomically friendly hand-finished stabilized walnut handle that has a traditional, timeless look and feel. The sleek integrated bolster allows for a traditional or pinch-grip. The brass rivets complement the walnut handle and accent the stainless-steel blade.

The Chef’s Knife is the workhorse of the kitchen. Its broad blade dices, slices, and chops fruits, vegetables, and meats while protecting knuckles from hitting the cutting board.


  • Signature craftsmanship. Meticulously formed in our Massachusetts facilities, each of our knives is finished to perfection using state of the art technology coupled with hand finishing as well as proprietary polishing and sharpening processes.
  • Unmatched quality. Blades are formed from proprietary high-carbon USA Made stainless steel (Grade 420HC-LAM). Knives come with sleek and sturdy handles of Infused Walnut.
  • Durable design. Our blades are precision laser cut and tempered to a hardness of 58 on the Rockwell scale. This results in a hard, wickedly sharp blade that retains an edge for longer and is both highly corrosion resistant and elastic.
  • Superior cutting performance. Full tang blades with double brass riveted handles ensure ideal balance and weight. Our combination machine and hand-sharpening processes ensures a consistently sharp and durable edge.
  • Superior ergonomic handling. A curved and recessed integrated bolster provides a seamless transition from handle to blade, resulting in comfortable thumb and finger support for better control and safety. If you use a traditional or advanced “pinch-grip”, you will love the feel and function of these knives.
  • Lifetime Warranty. Every Lamson product comes with a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects.
  • Guaranteed Reliability. Our Sharp for Life™ program supplies a lifetime of complimentary professional sharpening on every knife we make.

    Very very sharp cuts real nice

  2. Darrel P. (verified owner)

    I picked up this chefs knife to replace the Henkels classic 8” chefs knife that walked away from my kitchen one night. This knifed is beautiful right out the box. It’s sharp, well balanced, and the aesthetics are Gorgeous, the brass rivets through the handle really complete it’s overall appeal. I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for quality without having to pay an arm and a leg to German made blades.

  3. Thom P. (verified owner)

    Quality kraftsmenship

  4. Brad B. (verified owner)

    Nice balance, substantial weight and quality build.

  5. Felicia R. (verified owner)

    Absolutely beautiful, great quality and fast shipping

  6. Jasinowski A. (verified owner)

    This knife is really solidly constructed, with quality steel, wood, and brass. I love the aesthetics, but I have some hesitations on the design. The thumb grip ends a bit too tall, making the cove at the end of the handle less comfortable than it could be. The blade is thick- lends a nice feel and weight, but the thickness makes it more difficult to cut larger things because it’s a larger wedge than a thinner blade would be. Holds an edge fantastically well, and is easy to keep sharp with a steel.
    The brass rivets are really nice feeling, though I think the wood could use a more durable finish. The grain popped out on mine after one washing, so I sanded it and applied some walnut oil. The walnut oil looks great and holds well, but does need to be reapplied. Whatever stain or finish they used at the factory didn’t hold up.
    The shape of the blade makes for a great rocking motion, and is just the right length for my XL hands and cutting board.

    Overall, I do like it and I think it’s a solid knife, just could use some tweaking. It’s exactly as it says, a vintage chef knife! Maybe newer models have fixed my concerns, but I haven’t had the opportunity to use one.

    It handles well. Very sharp and easy to hold.

  8. Brianna W. (verified owner)

    This is my first real kitchen knife and I wanted to invest in something quality. It cuts well, has a nice weight, and what drew me to it originally is that it’s plastic free- my goal for my kitchen and life as much as possible. The great folks at Lamson went above and beyond and even made my shipping plastic-free, down to the packaging tape-which was paper.

    Thank you for a great product and wonderful customer service. Once my paring knives from grad school break, I know where I’ll be looking for the replacements!

  9. Kevin B. (verified owner)

    Great craftsmanship, finish, performance, and price!

    Live Lamson products – I have several now and most recently purchased the 8” chef knife and I use it almost every day. Excellent quality, very sharp, decently priced. I’ll be purchasing and entire set. Can’t go wrong with Lamson Knives

    After tiring of my low budget santoku, a search for made in the USA chef knife led me to Lamson, and I could not be more happy with mine. And I came back for their vintage santoku too.

Had a great weekend with friends and family! We enjoyed some much-needed downtime and even whipped up a delicious cocktail using fresh-cut limes and mint. Can you guess what it was?

In 1869, newly elected U.S. president Ulysses S. Grant received a “cutting edge” gift from a small manufacturer in Shelburne Falls Massachusetts. Lamson presented our nation’s leader with a 62-piece dinner set. 
The handcrafted pieces bore handles of ivory, while others were pure mother-of-pearl. The 62 pieces remain in the nation’s capital on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
