This space-age cutlery set is a flashy acquisition for trendsetters that also offers top performance for discriminating cooks. The set includes an 8-inch chefs knife--which works equally as well for slicing paper-thin rounds of carrots as it does for chopping a huge butternut squash into chunks; an 8-inch slicer for carving poultry or meat; a 5-inch serrated utility knife for cutting sandwiches in half or slicing tomatoes; and a 3-1/2-inch parer for peeling fruits or halving grapes. All knives fit into a hardwood block with modern stainless-steel accents along with a coarse-grit 9-inch sharpening steel for keeping knife edges honed, and a pair of 8-inch shears for cutting up a chicken or opening food packaging.
These Ultra Edge knives have heavy-gauge precision taper-ground blades for precise slicing and chopping. They are constructed of high-carbon Molybdenum steel, a material with a Rockwell hardness of 56 that maintains a knifes razor-sharp edge longer before requiring professional sharpening. A high chromium content in these knives provides the highest level of protection from rusting, staining, and corrosion. Handles are made of 18/8 stainless steel with a slip-proof satin finish plus are ergonomically-designed for a comfortable grip. The handles on these knives are also weighted to provide the perfect amount of balance and excellent control. Cuisinart cutlery is guaranteed under a lifetime warranty. --Cristina VaamondeWhats in the Box
