This 6 piece knife set is an elegant but functional addition to your kitchen. Each XINZUO blade features a beautiful Damascus pattern blade mounted on a lovely G10 Handle that has a proper heat treatment for great edge retention and durability.
The blades have a 10Cr15CoMoV Steel Blade Core that is used for the cutting edge. This steel has a high carbon content which means it can take and maintain a very sharp edge. Combined with the vacuum heat treatment process, this steel is very consistent in its hardness.
This hardness ranges from 58-62 HRC on the Rockwell scale, which is a sweet spot in terms of performance and durability. Any lower and the blade would be very durable but require constant sharpening due a lack of edge retention. Any higher and the blade would run the risk of chipping from being too brittle.
The core is reinforced and protected by two outer sections of steel made of 316/316L Stainless Steel. This helps protect the blade from acidic foods and rust which can shorten the life of your knives. Each section is made of 33 layers of steel in order to produce the Damascus pattern and create consistency within the steel’s substructure.
The outer sections and the core combine for a total of 67 individual steel layers. This creates a very durable, sharp blade and combines the different benefits found in high carbon and stainless steels.
The handles are made from Black G10, which is used for its consistency and durability. It features an ergonomic design that clearly directs the hand to where the knife needs to be held while cutting down on long term discomfort.
The G10 is a good counterpoint to the Herringbone Damascus pattern and the copper mosaic rivet at the bottom of the handle adds another layer to the overall aesthetic.
The 8.4 inch Chef knife will handle most of your medium to large kitchen tasks. Process herbs, vegetables, and meat easily with this versatile blade style. You might encounter some trouble with vegetables with higher water content sticking to the blade.
For more general cutting the 7.3 inch Santoku knife allows you to use a rocking method to efficiently cut vegetables and some meat. Unlike a chef’s knife, the Santoku is designed to deal with higher water content vegetables. Cutting lettuce and cucumbers is not a problem for this knife design.
The 5 inch Utility knife is great for those times when you don’t need a large knife for whatever you’re cooking. Utility knives handle everything from peeling and preparing fruit to coarse chopping vegetables.
For those fine tuned tasks, the 3.5 inch Paring knife allows for the most control during use. Preparing garnishes and similar tiny tasks are what this knife is best used for.
While it can be used for other things, the 8.5 inch Bread knife is amazing at cutting bread. The serrations help keep the bread from being too crushed, compromising the flavor, while still getting through thick crusts.
For your mass cutting tasks, the 7 inch Cleaver is designed to deal with the large sets of vegetables while still allowing for thin slices. Unlike other western cleaver designs used for chopping bone, this cleaver is closer to a nakiri-style cleaver.
