Ideal for all passionate cooks.
Esssential knives for your daily cuts.
The paring knife 9cm and the chef knife 20cm from the Wusaki Ebony VG10 series are characterised for their long-lasting sharpness, ergonomic design, and stunning look. These knives will quickly become indispensable for the preparation of your recipes. Suitable for professional and domestic usage, these kitchen knives can be used for working with a wide variety of foods such as meats, herbs, fruits, and vegetables.
With an impressive hardness thanks to its 1% of carbon content, the blades of these knives have cores made of Japanese VG10 steel. They can remain sharp 2 to 3 times longer than knives with European steel, and that is in great part explained by its hardness of 60 HRC in the Rockwell scale. Each blade is sharpened by hand on a leather grinding band to give it an ultra sharp V-shaped edge that guarantees easy penetration into your foods. The impressive quality and durability of the steel make these knives have an excellent cutting performance.
Unlike the typical riveted handle that you find in most Western kitchen knives, the handle of every Wusaki Ebony VG10 knife is made of ebony wood. It has veinings that are unique to every single knife, thus no two handles are the same. Ebony wood is a material that is robust and feels good in the hand. Furthermore, the octagonal shape of the handle is suitable for all cooks regardless of whether they are right or left handed.
Each blade has 67 layers of damascus steel around its core, which guarantees an optimal balance between rigidity and flexibility, but also gives the knife an original look highly appreciated by cooks.
And what to say about the handle? Octagonal shape, beautiful veinings, decorative red bands... it is truly one of a kind.
From the tip of the blade to the bottom of the handle, the design of these knives is just impossible to hate.
The kitchen knives from Wusaki are made in a small factory located in the north of Canton, which is the capital city of the Guangdong province in Western China. The good relationship between France and China allowed us to find a trustworthy partner with a family-size structure like ours. The manufacturing of Wusaki kitchen knives complies with the quality standards that are imposed by professionals of the industry in France. We are proud to be able to propose reliable kitchen tools of high quality at a fair price for our beloved customers.
Care tips: blades must be washed by hand and dried immediately with a soft cloth to prevent humidity traces on the steel. Try to avoid as much as possible to wet the handles, as wood is not a great friend of humidity.
