Ergo Chef Co-founder Scott Staib knows knives. After his career was sidelined due to carpal tunnel syndrome, he enlisted the help of his engineer brother, Mike, to help him come up with a solution. They worked tirelessly with designers, engineers, culinary professors and countless chefs to create a line of professional grade knives that would be a true extension of a chef’s hand. After three weeks of using their new ergonomically created design, Scott’s persistent tendonitis and carpal tunnel symptoms disappeared, and Ergo Chef was born.

My Thoughts
I was very impressed with this knife. Getting it out of the package was a little tough and I was careful not to cut myself because the blade was very sharp. In my hand, the knife was light, yet comfortable. I felt like I could control it as used it.

I tried cutting a variety of things with this knife, from vegetables, fruit, and meats. I had no issue cutting any of these. The blade went right through with ease and I didn't have to add any force like I have to with some knives. In fact, it glides through very smoothly that I found myself really liking this knife.

Washing was easy. I had washed it the first few times. It dried without spots and stayed shiny. I can tell a lot of work went into designing this knife. It's a good investment and will be a knife you'll be happy to have, especially if you have any wrist issues.
