Seasoned chefs have a bit of a love-hate relationship with their cutlery. A really good set of knives has to prove its worth by being put through the wringer - and if they're really good, they'll still look great afterward. So it is with the Damasukasu Japanese 3-Piece Master Chef Hanshu Knife Set.
Sitting in their reverent, minimalist case, they really do look too good to actually be used. But pick one up, and you'll want to start cutting immediately. They're made from subtly patterned carbon-rich steel, triple-riveted with a full tang and nitrogen cooled. Science aside, they're essentially made with the same techniques used to forge Japanese samurai swords, with a 12-degree cutting edge and Rockwell hardness rating of more than 62. Each one is precision-balanced, stain and rust resistant.
Each set contains a 7-inch Nakiri vegetable knife, 8.5-inch slicing knife, and 5-inch utility knife. The full Damasukasu Japanese 3-Piece Master Chef Hanshu Knife Set is now $69.99, a drop from the previous sale price of $199.99.

Unless you’re a regular cannabis user, you might be surprised to learn that the plant itself is basically just that — a plant. It’s not until you put cannabis under high heat that the process of decarboxylation breaks down that raw form into the psychoactive compounds that can actually benefit the body. This unlocking process […]
With our smartphones serving as the vital tether that links us to the rest of our lives, it’s no wonder how low batteries and power emergencies can occasionally feel like a life-and-death situation.
