Once you've cut steak or poultry with some actual quality knives, it's really tough to go back to those budget blades you bought at the department store a couple of decades ago.
Consider that a fair warning about this 5-Piece Professional Damascus Chef's Kitchen Set. The holiday discount makes it easy to buy for a friend. But if you do, you might be eating dinner at their place a lot more often.
The striking look on the metal is a beautiful side effect of the ancient methods that Black Forge Knives uses to produce them. The end result is Damascus steel, extremely hard and capable of being honed to a precise edge.
The set includes a butcher's knife, filet knife, and other standard sizes to suit any kitchen needs, plus a leather pouch for easy carrying. Like a trusty cast-iron pan, there's a bit of oiling and care required to keep them at their best – but when they're at their best, there's nothing quite like them.
