Dragon Fire 8.5" Chef's Knife

The Dragon FIRE 8.5" Chef's Knife is designed for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and more. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Dragon is constructed of 2.5-mm thick Nitrogen-Enriched American BD1N Steel, hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of 63. This extremely robust one-piece construction features extreme sharpness and edge retention. The handle is made of FDA approved red resin and linen Canvas Micarta with three stainless steel rivets. The canvas material is dyed red and brilliantly finished to last for decades. The end-cap of the handle is made of 18/10 stainless steel, which provides outstanding stability and balance.


Unlike regular Dragon knives, the Dragon Fire range is inspired by a French design, with longer, straighter edges. It is a thinner, lighter stock using 2.5mm thickness of steel, while the Dragon range is 3mm thickness. The knives are fully ground, and are 30% lighter weight than regular Dragon knives.

A laser that lasts

As an avid home chef that cooks everyday, and mechanical engineer by trade with a PE license in materials, I can say this is the best chefs knife I have ever found. I have powder steel knifes, Swedish steel knives, VG-10 and carbon steel knives, this knife lasts and doesn’t chip when doing everything from mincing herbs to deboning chickens. As a matter of physics I wish they made a 6” version. 8.5” is more than any chef needs.

Thought I was getting the Yaxell. My guess is that Apogee has the Yaxell rebranded the knife with their name on it. Still a nice knife

To clarify, Dragon knives have always been Apogee's. Yaxell was our previous manufacturing partner. We have since changed manufacturing partners, but we still use the exact same materials, designs, and fantastic heat treatment. I hope this clears up any confusion.
