Outstanding unbranded 5 piece Kitchen Cutlery set plus knife rack in 420 surgical grade stainless steel with great hardwood handles. These are razor sharp!
Last time I had these they sold out fast.
These knives are nearly as good as the professional kitchen knives I sell but FAR cheaper! Dishwasher safe, beautiful handles and full tang construction.
All knives are straight ground from back to edge.
1 chef’s knife – overall length 13.5″ (34.5cm), blade 8″ (20cm) by 4.5cm at finger guard and 2.4mm thick. Weight 222 grams
1 slicing/carving knife – overall length 13″ (33cm), blade 8″ (20cm) by 2.8 cm and 1.8mm thick. Weight 165 grams.
1 bread knife – 13″ (33cm) Weight 182 grams.
1 paring knife – 9.5″ (23.5cm) Weight 79 grams
1 paring knife – 8″ (21cm) Weight 74 grams.
All of the knives are medium weight and razor sharp.
1 knife rack in clear and black plastic – really good as you can see which knife is which.
What makes these knives superb is the steel used. Many kitchen knives are made with inferior grades of stainless steel. “Stainless” is a large group of steel alloys – many entirely unsuitable for blade use.
Grade 420 is capable of attaining good hardness, sharpness and wear resistance of the stainless alloys. Its very high carbon content is responsible for these characteristics along with superior heat treatment. Of course this is also more expensive – you get what you pay for.
These are a quality set. They are not cheap but they will take a superb edge and keep it!
