Precision when cutting is key, and it's hard to get any more precise than when using a carbon steel blade. This set consists of a santoku, chef's, serrated paring, utility, straight paring, slicing, and bread knife, as well as a sharpening steel, shears, and a stylish bamboo wood block.This kitchen knife set by Victorinox uses a high quality, carbon stainless steel alloy to create a very fine and sharp edge. Carbon steel has a remarkable hardness to it, and so is capable of being sharpened to a super fine point, sharper than stainless steel or other metals. This sharpness helps chefs to cut with accuracy and precision, and make short work of the hardest of foods. The set is hot drop forged and ice tempered , which improves the strength and elasticity of the metal and makes it superior to a cast metal or machined blade.
Previously known as RF Forschner, Victorinox knives are made in Switzerland by the makers of the original Swiss Army Knife. Stemming from pure necessity, Master Cutler Karl Elsner began producing the Original Swiss Army Knife in 1891 to meet the needs of soldiers on the field. Since then, Victorinox has become a fine cutlery company true to its Swiss roots and professional cutlery precision, quality, functionality and versatility. Victorinox is in the hands of more professionals, from the meatpacking industry to a four-star restaurant, than any other brand of cutlery.
