The Master Honshu is a handmade masterpiece. In a vacuum heat treatment 103 layers of high quality Damascus are wrapped around a stable VG10 core. This results in an extremely sharp knife with a hardness of 60 ± 2 HRC. This ensures a long-lasting sharpness, which takes your cooking to a new level and increases your pleasure. The ergonomic handle is hand polished and mainly made of high quality white shadow wood. It is the ultimate knife that leaves no wishes unfulfilled.
The chef's knife is the all-rounder among knives: its wide, strong blade glides smoothly through fish and meat and shreds even the hardest vegetables. A chef's knife also handles chopping herbs and nuts with ease: Simply place the tip of the knife on the cutting board and move the blade up and down. And as if that wasn't enough, you can use the broad side of the knife to evenly plate meat slices like a schnitzel. With so much flexibility, it's no wonder that a chef's knife should be part of the basic equipment of every kitchen.
Knives from this collection are the ideal gift for passionate and aspiring hobby chefs, making even the most demanding friends and family members very satisfied.
