Where is the American chef 's knife? For many years we have become familiar with a multitude of Japanese blade shapes as well as many popular German and French designs. But what about America? The United States has a rich, deep culinary history, but no domestic blade shape to call its own, until now. Mattia Borrani designed the Bowie Chef® to pay homage to an original American blade shape steeped with almost 200 years of history. Mattia Borrani's constant drive for innovation, creativity, and freedom to pick and choose the finest from the melting pot of cultures is what makes up the United States, and is what the Bowie Chef® is all about.
