The scalloped santoku knife 17cm and the paring knife 9cm from the Wusaki Ebony AUS8 range make life easier in the kitchen of professionals and home cooks. With these knives, you enjoy professional quality at an affordable price. These knives have blades with long-lasting sharp edges that are easy to hone when needed and that are also resistant to corrosion. In addition, each blade is manually sharpened on a leather band with a total angle of 30° (15° on each side) to make precise and clean cuts.
Each blade is made of AUS8 Japanese steel, which is known for its high carbon content of 0.8%, which is higher than the average. This allows the blade's edge to remain sharp for longer time despite of daily usage. The steel is also enriched with tungsten, which, when combined with carbon, enhances the blade's hardness making it reach 59 HRC on the Rockwell scale. Overall, the blades have an optimal balance between ease of sharpening and an edge that remains sharp for long. Furthermore, the high level of chromium also present in the steel helps the blades resist better to corrosion.
Made of robust ebony wood, the handle of each knife feels good in the hand. The wooden surface is varnished to make it more resistant to humidity and stains. It has an oval design that adapts perfectly to both left and right handed cooks.
The surface of the blades is hammered by a press, which creates dimples that are unique to each knife. The hammered surface helps the blades to be les adherent to humid foods, but they also give them an original look. Moreover, the steel of the blades and the wood of the handles create a beautiful contrast that is pleasant to the eyes. Last but not least, the Japanses character engraved at the bottom steel end of the handle is the final touch that makes each knife truly unique.
Wusaki knives are made in a small factory in the north of Canton, which is the capital city of the Guangdong province in Western China. This province is historically known for the manufacturing of steel knives of great quality. The good relationship between France and China allowed us to find a trustworthy partner with a family-sized structure like ours. The production of Wusaki knives respect the French standards of professional quality. We are proud to offer reliable work tools made of top quality materials and at a fair price for our customers.
The knives must be hand washed and dried with a soft cloth to avoid humidity traces on the steel. Store them in a dry place.
