Set of 3 kitchen knives for your daily cuts.
Perfect balance of beauty and quality.
Content of the set: 1 paring knife 9cm, 1 utility knife 12cm, and 1 scalloped santoku knife 17cm. These Wusaki Ebony AUS8 knives are designed to make your cooking routine much easier. These kitchen knives stand out for delivering a truly professional quality despite not being as costly as other ones 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 is why each knife displays an excellent cutting performance since the very first cut.
The blades of thes knives are made of AUS8 Japanese steel. This alloy has a carbon content of 0.8%, which is higher than average, and that explains why the blade's edge remains sharp for longer time. 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. The blades have an optimal balance between ease of sharpening and an edge that remains sharp for long time. Moreover, the high level of chromium also present in the steel improves the blade's resistance to corrosion.
Robust and comfortable, the handles of these kitchen knives are made of ebony wood. This noble material feels good in the hand. Its wooden surface is varnished to be resistant to stains and humidity. In addition, the oval shape of each handle adapts perfectly to all cooks regardless of whether they are right or left handed.
The blades are hammered by a press, which creates unique and original dimples on the surface. Those dimples give the blade an authentic look, but they also help to make it 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 look appreciated by cooks. Last but not least, the final touch of originality that makes each knife truly special is the Japanese character engraved on the steel bottom end of the handle.

Care tips: 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.
