This Chef, Santoku, and Utility knife set combines function and artistry with these Japanese themed blade styles. Each XINZUO blade features three layers of steel in each knife.
These layers consist of two out layers made of SuS410 Stainless Damascus Steel and a single inner core made of 10Cr15CoMoV Steel. This allows for different properties to be combined without compromising the steel used for each layer.
The 10Cr15CoMoV Steel used in the core provides a sharp primary cutting edge. This high carbon steel is heat treated to provide a durable cutting edge that isn’t too brittle. To ensure this, the steel is only hardened to a 60-62 HRC on the Rockwell scale which allows for the edge to be very hard but not hard enough to be brittle.
The outer SuS410 Stainless Damascus Steel is used as an anti-corrosion layer. This allows for a beautiful stonewashed finish that features a hammered look and traditional Hamon line without compromising the primary edge.
The handle features a Black Buffalo horn section that leads into a rich Red Wood. This offsets the coloration of the blade as it transitions from a light steel edge to a stone washed design, finishing with the horn and lighter red wood.
The handle design itself is based on more traditional Japanese cooking knives. This provides longer term comfort while using these knives and better control for safer handling.
The 8 inch Kiritsuke blade is similar in use to a Chef's Knife. The blade design is primarily used for thinly slicing fish, but it is generally considered a universal knife when it comes to food processing. It does take some time to get used to the design and is usually reserved for the head chef of a professional kitchen.
The 7 inch Santoku knife is best used for chopping, mincing, and dicing. This makes it especially useful for dealing with vegetables, including those that give the Chef knife trouble. It can also be used on meat to produce nice thin slices.
The 5 inch Utility knife deals with smaller cutting tasks that larger blades might struggle with. Peeling fruit, deboning meat, mincing herbs, and other general tasks are all within the abilities of the Utility knife. They allow for better fine-tuned control compared to their larger counterparts.
