This Kitchen Utility knife set is extremely high performance. This is because of a combination of the blade steels and the overall design.

The blade is made up of three different layers of steel and uses two different steels to achieve the best combination of factors. The blade core is made from ZDP189 Powder Steel. Powder steel is a very consistent manufacturing process that essentially allows the steel to be tailor made for specific purposes.

In this case, the core is very hard allowing for  magnetic-knife-holder extremely sharp blades and good edge retention. However this makes it harder to sharpen when they do start to dull, but this also takes longer to achieve. The edge is hardened to 65-67 on the Rockwell Scale which is some of the highest hardness you can have on an edge.

The core is sandwiched between two sections of SUS405 Stainless steel. While ZDP-189 is moderately resistant to corrosion, SUS405 has better anti-rust capabilities. This means the primary cutting edge  is made from the sharpest steel variety while the rest of the outer knife portions are more rust resistant.

Each handle is made from Black G10,White Ox Bone, and Padauk Wood. The handle shape is octagonal which allows for better comfort with long use.

The 5 inch Utility knife features a miniature Gyuto (Chef knife) design. This allows it to work with most small to medium cutting tasks that you wouldn’t use a full sized Chef knife on. This knife is great for food preparation, making edible decorations, and just general cutting tasks.
