Chefs know that when it comes to chopping, slicing, paring and dicing, it’s all in the wrist. Unfortunately, many professional and home chefs develop carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis. Scott Staib, founder of Ergo Chef, experienced this first hand. Enlisting the help of his engineer brother Mike, they worked with designers, engineers, culinary professors and chefs to create a line of professional grade knives that would be a true extension of a chef’s hand. Ergo Chef CRIMSON Knives are crafted from durable high-carbon steel and fiberglass resin. Their ergonomic handles’ shape, size, weight and balance have proven to reverse the signs and stressors that cause carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis. Chef/restaurateur Michael Symon chose the Ergo Chef team to design and manufacture his new line of ergonomic knives. “Ergo Chef was able to take my vision for high-quality, durable knives and make it a reality,” said Symon. “We worked together to develop a design that looks great and has a super balanced, comfortable feel in the hand, which is really important for those who love to cook the way I do.” Symon introduced his new Ergo Chef line on March 8, 2015 at the International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago, IL.
