From the Manufacturer
The perfect starter block set, this seven-piece Mundial 5100 cutlery collection begins with a 3-1/2-inch paring knife for small-scale cutting tasks and a 6-inch serrated edge utility knife that's great for slicing foods such as tomatoes and small breads. The set also features an 8-inch chef's knife for chopping, dicing, and slicing any size or type of food and an 8-inch serrated bread knife that expertly cuts through soft or hard breads with ease. Because the cutting edges of all knives lose their sharpness over time and with continuous use, the set offers a 10-inch sharpening steel that restores the blades to just-out-of-the-box condition. The set concludes with a pair of kitchen shears with take-apart blades for easy cleaning--worth their weight in gold to any chef--and a solid wood block that provides a safe, convenient place to store your knives. The attractive block looks great on a kitchen counter and includes three extra slots for expanding your Mundial collection.
Based on the theory that exposure to red quickens the pulse and increases the appetite, Mundial's 5100 Series Red adds a burst of color and contemporary style to the company's classic assortment of premium, fully forged cutlery. The color red is associated with heat and energy, which makes it a natural fit in many kitchens, especially among chefs who want to parade a bit of individual flair. The cutlery is fully forged from high-carbon stainless steel and comes equipped with traditional, three-riveted, red polyacetal handles.
The Value of a Fully-Forged Knife
Mundial knives, with very few exceptions, are fully forged in a manufacturing process that combines innovative technology with old-world tradition and expertise. In the forging process, steel is heated to an extremely high temperature, set into a die, and hammered into the shape of the basic blade. Following a heating and cooling process, the forged blade is ground to create a full taper to the cutting edge. The result is a stronger, thicker, more resilient blade that flares smoothly at the heel to blend into the shape of the handle. Fully forged cutlery offers an array of key benefits, including greater tensile strength, increased durability, lasting sharpness, and better balance and control.
Mundial's computer-aided design creates the perfect shape and balance for chopping, dicing, and slicing all types of food. The knives are fully forged from high-carbon chrome molybdenum stainless steel for the best edge retention and sharpening ease. Each knife also undergoes Mundial's computerized blade grinding and polishing process to create a precise taper from tip to bolster (the quality bolster is the main feature of any truly forged knife). Busy chefs will appreciate the ergonomically crafted handles with full tangs, which deliver comfort, balance, and durability. Every Mundial knife is also hand sharpened and individually tested for ultimate performance.
How do Mundial knives compare to other premium cutlery? In addition to its extensive quality control procedures, Mundial regularly submits its products to an international independent testing facility. These standardized testing methodologies continue to show that Mundial knives are among the best in the world.
