3 knives to cover all your cutting needs.
Great quality and beautiful design for your kitchen.
This knives included in this set are: 1 chef knife 20cm, 1 utility knife 12cm, and 1 paring knife 9cm. All Wusaki Ebony AUS8 knives designed to make the day-to-day work of professional chefs and home cooks much easier. These knives stand out for delivering a truly professional quality despite not being as costly as other knives of similar quality. Each knife has a sharp blade that is easy to hone and that is resistant to corrosion. Furthermore, each blade is manually sharpened on a leather band at a total angle of 30° (15° on each side), which ensures a precise and remarkable cutting performance.
Each blade is made of AUS8 Japanese steel, which is known for its high carbon content of 0.8%. This carbon content is higher than average, and that explains why the blade's edge remains 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 time. In addition, the high level of chromium also present in the steel helps the blades be more resistant to corrosion.
The handles of these kitchen knives are made of ebony wood. This robust material feels good in the hand. The wooden surface is varnished to be resistant to stains and humidity. Its oval shape is perfectly suitable for all cooks regardless of whether they are left or right handed.
The blades are hammered by a press to create unique and original dimples on the surface. Those dimples give the knife an authentic look, but they also help the blade to be less adherent to humid foods. The contrast between the steel of the blades and the wood of the handles results in an elegant and refined appearance appreciated by most cooks. Last but not least, the Japanese character engraved on the steel bottom end of the handle is the final touch of originality that makes each knife truly unique.

Maintenance: 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.
