Like most unique companies, Ergo Chef was founded serendipitously. Scott Staib wasn’t supposed to make knives; he was supposed to be a chef. After his training at Johnson & Wales University, Scott set out to rise through the culinary ranks. His first stop was an ultra-swanky country club where he proved his mettle as the sauté and grill chef. Next was his gig as sous chef for Aramark. He was on the fast track when he was sidelined by tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome—a result of the repetitive motion of chopping. Scott found that he was not the only chef—professional or home—cook to suffer from tendonitis and hand a wrist pain. He enrolled his engineer brother Mike, to help find a solution. They worked closely with engineers at the family’s design & machining company to examine how a conventional knife fits & moves in a chef’s hand. Together, they crafted a knife that was a true extension of a chef’s hand. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and Ergo Chef was born.
