Our Hammered Damascus Steel Kitchen Knives follow a long-held Japanese tradition. This set features a unique and beautiful “tsuchi-me” (hammered texture) on the blade, paired with an elegant Linen Micarta Resin Handle that is not only high heat resistant but impenetrable to bacteria. Each hand finished hammered Damascus blade is specially customized by Sha-pu to fit professional needs. Damascus blades hold a reputation for having a long-lasting edge retention and capable of being sharpened to a sharp, resilient edge. The symmetrical 50:50 double-edged blade is suitable for both right and left-handed individuals.
Each Set Includes the 5 Essential Knives for Any Kitchen:
1 x 8″ Chef Knife:
Traditional all-purpose Chef Knife is the work horse of any true chef in the kitchen. Superior balance, weight & durability with all the refinement & elegance your kitchen deserves.
1 x Santoku Knife:
The santoku, meaning “three virtues”, is an all-purpose knife that takes its name from its superior ability to easily handle meat, fish and vegetables. The high profile blade makes the santoku well-suited for home cooks and hard core professionals… and keeps the knuckles well above the cutting board.
1 x Bread Knife:
Nobody likes to have crushed bread and our damascus steel bread knife comes supremely sharp out of the box and will retain its edge even longer than other serrated bread knives. This bread knife is worth the price of the set even by itself.
1 x 5″ Utility Knife:
Sha-pu’s true all purpose go-to blade gets the odd jobs done right. Perfectly balanced & ideally weighted. We like to call this the baby brother to our Chef Knife because we spared no expense in the details and refinement of this dutifully smaller, yet highly impactful addition to the Sha-pu line of essential kitchen knives.
1 x 3.5″ Paring Knife
Each chef requires some extra dexterity and precision in the kitchen and our Sha-pu Paring Knife combines the perfect accuracy & agility while coring, peeling, develing or segmenting with complete & comfortable control.
Custom designed Acacia Wood Block included. You won’t find a more beautiful wood for holding knives safely while preventing bacteria and corrosive materials from accumulating around your knife blades inside the block. Just look inside some other wood blocks and you will never store your knives in anything other than an Acacia Wood Block from Sha-pu.
