In this video I’m reviewing a Cheap AliExpress Chef’s knife from Xituo, the core material is made from a 7Cr17Mov stainless steel material.
The knife is artificially created by the manufacturer and is not handmade. The information on the seller’s page is minimal but you can find the same knife on other stores in AliExpress with an extra logo on the endcap of the handle.
Xituo Chef’s knife 7Cr17Mov Stainless Steel specifications”:
Handle: Wooden Handle
Endcap: No Logo
Handle length: 125mm
Blade length: 21mm
Blade width: 45mm
Total Lenght: 333.5mm
Core Material: 7Cr17Mov
HRC: 56/57 (during my testing).
The knife store I bought this knife from is Xituo (For around $1 or $2 extra you can get an edge guard with your order):
Another knife store with an Endcap handle logo Glitzy Store:
PS: I only have experience with Xituo Store No.2 and not Glitzy Store so I don’t know the reliability of the store but you are always protected by the AliExpress buyer protection.
