Slice like never before with this Miyabi Fusion ten piece knife block set, created in collaboration with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. Including a bread knife, slicing knife, two chef's knives, hollow edge santoku, utility knife, vegetable knife, sharpening steel, and kitchen shears in a bamboo block, the blades are constructed with a durable VG-10 (CMV60) core, sandwiched by 64 layers of softer steels, each rolled on top of each other creating a flower damascus pattern. A complex mix of cobalt, molybdenum and vanadium, the VG-10 core produces a sharpness and cutting edge retention measurably superior to ordinary knife steels. The blades are ice hardened through the CRYODUR process, giving them optimal edge retention, flexibility and corrosion resistance. Sharpened to the traditional Japanese blade angle of nine to twelve degrees on each side, the Katana edges are hand finished in the traditional three-step honbazuke method. The blades also feature a rounded spine and blade heel design, making kitchen work gentler on fingers and hands. The triple-riveted Western style handles are made from a black resin called Duracon, with a full tang and eye-catching red accents. Finished by master craftsmen in Seki, Japan, this set is backed by a lifetime warranty.
