The LamsonSharp Rosewood Forged Cutlery Series features a one-piece, forged, full tang blade made of hardened and tempered high-carbon stainless steel from Soligen, Germany. The Oiled Rosewood hadles are naturally hard and heavy, making them extremely durable, they are triple riveted with brass rivets for perfect balance and weight. The taper-ground blades are polished, hand-edged and honed. All forged knives from LamsonSharp are shipped in their own KnifeSafe, to protect the knives and the people who use them. This knife will be Sharp for Life, with the unique free factory knife sharpening program. All LamsonSharp products are proudly made in the USA and carry a lifetime warranty.
This comprehensive set contains the knives most frequently used in any kitchen, including an 8-inch chef's knife, two 3-1/4-inch parers, and a 6-inch utility, along with several special-use knives that any cook would be relieved to own, such as the 4-inch fruit knife and the 10-inch bread and roast slicer. Each knife features a sturdy high-carbon stainless-steel blade that is hand forged for strength and then brass riveted to its traditional rosewood handle.
Blades on LamsonSharp knives are hand honed for extra sharpness, and each has a full tang, which means the blade extends all the way through the handle. This adds heft and balance to the knives. Although the rosewood handles are dishwasher-safe, it is best to hand wash fine cutlery like this in warm, soapy water. The block in this set will protect both the knife blades and the cook's hands, and having one's knives in a block provides an attractive unity to the well-appointed kitchen. --Jill Marquis
