Top 10 Best Titanium Kitchen Knives 2020

Titanium is as strong as steel but less dense. To use it in a knife you mix it with alloys, just like steel. A titanium knife is harder but also more brittle than a steel knife. This means it is more likely to break if you use it for prying or anything that will put a lot of force on the blade. It does not keep an edge as well as steel and will need to be sharpened more often.
Is there such a thing as Titanium Kitchen Knives? As far as I know, there are none of the big manufacturers that sell a kitchen knife made from titanium. They all coat the knives with Titanium to add extra strength and make food less stick and keep rost away.

Kuro-Obi Black Titanium 8 Inch Chef Knife

Kuro-Obi Black Titanium 8 Inch Chef Knife

The Kuro-Obi Black Titanium 8-inch Chef Knife is made from German High Carbon 1.4116 Stainless Steel with a black titanium coating for maximum edge and knife durability. The German stainless steel used is rated between 55-57 Rockwell and is one of the best metals for everyday kitchen knives. It has excellent strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. In order to save the blade from easy chipping, it is sharpened with a 13-degree angle per side. Kuro-Obi claims that this is the optimal balance between sharpness and chipping resistance. The titanium coating adds an extra layer of toughness to the durable German stainless steel. The ergonomically shaped handle is hollow, which makes the knife much lighter than full-tang knives with a heavy handle.
Since the whole knife is made from one piece of steel you have no joints between the blade and the handle. That makes the cleaning of the knife very easy.

DALSTRONG – 8-inch Chef’s Knife – Shadow Black Series

Dalstrong Shadow Black Series

The Shadow Black Series from Dalstrong features an exceptional grip, a sharp cutting edge, and is engineered for optimal maneuverability. The design of the grip of the Dalstrong 8-inch Shadow Black Chef Knife is inspired by the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth Fighter. Strangely enough, it does fit for me with my big hands and for my better half with her much smaller hands.
The high-carbon German steel has 58+ on the Rockwell scale honed by expert craftsmen to 16-18°– ensuring clean, precise cuts and excellent edge-retention. It is heat-treated followed by a deep-freeze nitrogen cooling process which enhances hardness and flexibility.
The fiber-resin military-grade G10 handle is nearly impervious to heat, cold and moisture. A black, non-reflective titanium-nitride coating adds corrosion resistance and toughens to the blade. It enhances the non-stick properties and adds to the dark appearance.
Each blade is engineered and weighted for the perfect balance to minimize hand fatigue and optimize function.
