Artisan Professional Chef's Knife Set 4-piece
We have been asked to recommend a set of kitchen knives for a chef or as a great gift. Artisan brand knives are our choice because professional cooks around Japan have chosen them their own...
This kit includes the following items:
- Artisan 4-1/2" Paring Knife
- Artisan 6" Slicing Knife
- Artisan 8-1/2" Chef (Gyuto) Knife
- Artisan 7" Santoku Knife
The blades on these knives are similar to a Western chef’s knife, but with the cutting qualities of the best Japanese made knives. The maker adopted powdered steel technology so that the blade would have a high hardness (Rc64) and would resist rust. Each blade has a forged triple-layered structure. The center layer is SRS-15 powdered steel, originally designed for metal cutting tools, while the cladding layers are soft SUS-405 stainless steel. This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and chip resistant edge that is easy to resharpen. A forge-welded bolster seals the blade from the handle, and for strength and longevity, the triple riveted tang runs the full length of the handle. This well-shaped, comfortable handle is made from multiple wood layers infused with resin for a lifetime of use. Both handle and tang are tapered for better balance and reduced fatigue during long use.
