This set includes 2 essential knives for your kitchen in a gorgeous walnut block. The set includes a 8" chef knife, and a 3.5" paring knife. All of the knives are full tang and perfectly balanced. They are all hand forged and sharpened from high alloy Swedish Sandvik 14C28N Steel. They are set at an angle in the walnut block giving it a striking a beautiful look. If you had only these two knives in you kitchen you could do most everything needed on a daily basis to prepare meals. Swedish Sandvik 14C28N Steel is a fine grained steel which can be heat treated to a hardness rating of 59 +/- 2 HRC without the common issues of brittleness in the blade.

These knives are sharper out of the box and will stay sharp up to five times longer than comparable knives on the market. NSF certifed for food safety.
