I tell a student that the most important class you can take is technique. A great chef is first a great technician.Jacques Pepin
This model is one of our most popular knives, and for good reason! A super sharp blade, stainless, well balanced and simply beautiful. Due to the special handcrafted manufacturing process, each handle is unique in color and pattern and therefore cannot be selected separately. It is the ultimate surprise!
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.
This collection is named after Japanese islands and each knife is as beautiful as the islands themselves. Characteristic of the WASABI Island Special Collection are the colorful and beautiful handles, which are well balanced to ensure long, comfortable and fatigue-free working.
But the blades are also a real eye-catcher. They consist of a VG10 core, which is covered by a total of 67 layers of Damascus steel. This ensures a long-lasting sharpness, which takes your cooking to a new level and increases your pleasure.
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.
