This 5 piece Damascus Chef knife set is a quality example of AUS-10 knives. Why is AUS-10 steel an important factor for your kitchen knives? AUS-10 is a very good steel when it comes to edge sharpness through its high carbon content.
In this case, the AUS-10 makes up the primary cutting edge of the knife and offers a sharp edge that is very corrosion resistant and easy to sharpen. This means that you may have to sharpen the edge more often than other, harder edge options, but in the long run they will be easier to maintain without highly specialized tools.
With Genuine Japanese AUS-10 making up the blade core, the outer sections of the knife are made up of 66 additional layers of SUS430 Stainless Damascus Steel, for a total of 67 layers. The SUS430 adds additional resistance to acidic and other corrosive foods.
The outer steel layers also feature a beautiful Raindrop Hammered Damascus pattern off-set by an ergonomic handle made from North American Black Walnut and Synthetic Ox Bone. This makes the knife look good while allowing you to use it comfortably for a long time.
The handle swells near the middle of the grip in order to sit more evenly in the hand in a classic Western-style design. Any rough edges are dehorned to eliminate hotspots on the knife handle.
The 8.5 inch Damascus Chef knife is going to handle most of your medium to large cutting tasks in the kitchen. This classic Western-style blade design has a lot of cutting and slicing ability, handling meat to vegetables and even non-standard cooking tasks.
The 7 inch Damascus Santoku knife works best with vegetables, although it can easily deal with cooked and raw meats. The blade shape helps prevent high water content vegetables and fruits from sticking to the sides of the blade. This knife style is very forgiving and allows you to cut very thin, consistent pieces.
The 5 inch Damascus Utility knife has a wider than normal blade design. This helps it cut with more emphasis, dealing with medium or smaller cutting tasks. The overall shape of the blade is more similar to a full sized Chef knife but in a smaller overall size.
The 3.5 inch Damascus Paring knife is good for fruits and other small form cutting tasks. While there are a wide variety of Paring knife styles, this version has a more drop-point style of blade. This allows for cutting versatility and a thicker blade profile.
The 8.5 inch Damascus Bread knife is more like a serrated Santoku knife. This allows for a controlled method of cutting bread with thicker crusts than your standard store-bought loaf. Bread knives use their serrations to avoid crushing the bread and can be used on cakes, muffins, and bagels.
