Stamped from high-carbon, stain-free steel, this professional-quality collection is defining a new millennium for stamped cutlery. The knives feature razor-sharp blade edges that provide easy edge maintenance and sharpening. The ergonomic handles provide the following innovations: a unique combination of Santoprene for comfort and polypropylene for tough use and textured finger points and a protective finger guard that provide slip resistance and safety. Turners with precision-ground stainless-steel blades deliver the right mix of flexibility and stiffness. Even more, the turner handle is molded polypropylene for an extra-sure grip.
