Product description

Size:8 Piece

Having the right tools breeds security in the kitchen. These Japanese-style cook's knives are specialized for their dexterity in chopping, dicing, and slicing. The 8-piece set includes the following knives: 3-1/2-inch paring, 5-inch utility, 5-inch serrated, 7-inch santoku, and an 8-inch chef's. Rounding out the set is a pair of kitchen shears, sharpening rod, and bamboo storage block. Rust-resistant stainless-steel blades hold an incredibly sharp edge. Traditional-style rounded Japanese handles are made of heat- and water-resistant resin, and they feature a full tang. As with all fine cutlery, hand washing is best for care.

What's in the Box?
8 pieces: 3-1/2-inch paring, 5-inch utility, 5-inch serrated, 7-inch santoku, 8-inch chef's, shears, sharpening rod, and bamboo storage block.

Chikara 8-Piece Knife Set with Bamboo Block

In the Japanese language "Chikara" means power and energy. The 420J2 Japanese stainless-steel fully forged blades and traditional Japanese handles express the true meaning of Chikara in the kitchen.

Key Features

Japanese-style handles: the handles are made from heat- and water-resistant resin, and they fit smoothly in your hand.

Fully forged blades: the blade, bolster, and tang of the knife are made from a single piece of steel for exceptional balance and strength.

Bamboo storage block: designed to store and protect your cutlery, the block has a beautiful bamboo finish and Asian fair that will complement any kitchen.

Limited lifetime warranty: for the assurance that your Ginsu knives will perform both now and for years to come.

Proper Care

Ginsu Chikara knives should be hand washed only, and they require periodic sharpening using whetstone. The edge should be honed by using the honing rod before each use to ensure maximum performance.

Set Includes

8-Inch Chef's Knife 8-Inch Chef's Knife Known as the most versatile of all knives, the chef's knife may be used to peel, trim, pare, slice, dice, and chop.
7-Inch Santoku Knife 7-Inch Santoku Knife A traditional Asian-style knife that excels in chopping, slicing, and making paper-thin cuts. The Kullens grind on the blade adds a unique visual appeal, as well as aids in preventing foods from sticking to the blade.
5-Inch Utility Knife 5-Inch Utility Knife The utility knife is a great tool for generally any type of use. It excels at cutting smaller portions of meats and fruits, but can also be used to pare, trim, peel, slice, and dice foods.
5-Inch Serrated Utility Knife 5-Inch Serrated Utility Knife Performs all the tasks of the fine-edge utility knife, but the serrated edge is specially designed to slice delicate foods such as tomatoes.
3-1/2-Inch Paring Knife 3-1/2-Inch Paring Knife Due to its small size, the paring knife allows fine control of the blade and tip of the knife, making it great for fine and precision cutting. Peeling, garnishing, and small chopping tasks can quickly and easily be accomplished with the paring knife.
8-Inch Honing Rod 8-Inch Honing Rod Used to maintain the edge of the blades.
Kitchen Shears Kitchen Shears The kitchen shears are the most versatile tool in the kitchen. They can be used to cut anything from poultry and vegetables to twine and plastic bags. The handles have a built-in twist-style bottle opener, jar opener, and nut cracker. The blades have a built-in bottle opener.
Bamboo Storage Block Made from richly grained bamboo, the block beautifully stores and protects fine cutlery when not in use.

The Ginsu Story

Known for decades as the maker of very sharp knives, Ginsu has evolved to create incredibly sharp, technologically superior cutlery with the highest quality standards. Ginsu draws from the ancient Japanese methods of Samurai sword smiths to produce the same level of precision and craftsmanship in our contemporary knives. Its fully forged blades and Japanese-style, ergonomic handles have gained respect from generations of consumers, making Ginsu one the most well-known names in cutlery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not like they used to be.
By Soggy Waffles on April 7, 2018
Friend has the smaller set from years ago and they look, feel and cut great. Was excited to receive this set but alas, it’s a piece of excrement.

Two knives are missing the logo, the wood block looks and feels cheap. Not to mention it has glue and “wood” blubbling and sticking out all over the place. Knives are DULLLLLLL. Drags them across my fingers and hands and nothing. If I do that with my calphalon I’d be in the ER. Save yourself time and money and skip these. I got the Calphalon Precisiok series and love them.

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY THESE!
By Brittainy on January 10, 2019
These were absolutely awful. My first order came and it appeared that it was a returned set. The knives were in an unsealed box inside of the shipping box, each was wrapped lazily in different wrappings. The block looked like a 3 year old glued it together, the craftsmanship was horrible. The knives did appear sharp, but dirty. Then my husband noticed that only the bread knife had the logo printed on the end, and that one knife had a smeared faded logo. The rest were unmarked, though the photos on amazon show logo labeled knives. We returned the knives. Our next set was no better, and may have been worse. Both went back and we will not be purchasing again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rust spots after 3 weeks.
By Ian on July 23, 2017
I've been using these knives for 3 weeks, and they've already developed rust spots. I hand wash and dry them after use, but this doesn't seem to help. The knives themselves work great, are very sharp, but for the price (and the "stainless steel" claim), I would expect them to hold up longer. We tried using barkeepers friend on the effected areas, but this didn't work. Save your money and buy cheap knives, or spend some real money and go for the best. These are not a good middle of the road option.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Stainless, Not Japanese!!
By David C. on December 4, 2020
Each knife says “China” on it, stating it was made in China not Japan.

Furthermore one knife came with stains, meaning they aren’t stainless, another knife came with a huge stain on it.

How could they not notice the big stain when packing it to send it to me?

Lack of care and detail for an expensive knife set... would not buy again, I would recommend looking at other brands that take their knives seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 years later AMAZING. Keeps edge. Steal of a deal
Reviewed in Canada on April 16, 2021
Amazing value. I had someone from Cutco come to my house for a demonstration; he said go grab your chef’s knife and see if you can cut some of these items. After I sliced through the thick rope easier than the cutco... he stopped and said he’d never seen someone actually do that. These were 4 year old knives at the time. I hone them on the rod after washing (just 2 strokes a side kind of thing) and took them to get sharpened once.
You do not need to invest $1000 into a knife set. THIS IS A GREAT SET. But them!!
They keep an edge just as good as my Spyderco knife, better than Henckels, better than Wustof.

Only downside is that a friend was cooking at our house and used the med sized knife to open something and snapped it in half.
But as long as you’re a normal human being that uses knifes to cut things... you’re all good with this set.
