More info

This Wusaki knife set is a great option for handling all your food cuts during the preparation of your favourite recipes. The knives in this set are suitable for professional chefs as well as for home cooks. This set belongs to the Ebony AUS8 series, which offers kitchen knives that combine an excellent cutting performance with a beautiful design.

All Wusaki knives are made in the city of Canton, which is the capital of the Guangdong province in Western China. This region is historically known for its vast know-how in the manufacturing of cutlery. Wusaki makes its knives following and complying with the quality standards put in place by the professionals in the European industry. 

Content of the set:

- 1 santoku knife scalloped blade 17cm: polyvalent knife with a Japanese design that is perfect for working with vegetables and boneless meats 

- 1 paring knife 9cm: handy and easy to manipulate, it is ideal for working with small vegetables and fruits.

The blades of are made of AUS-8 stainless steel, which is a Japanese steel highly appreciated for its multiple advantages. For example, its high content of chromium (14.5%) and molybdenum make the blades resistant to corrosion. This characteristic is a major perk, because it enables the blades to be perfectly suitable for usage in professional kitchens. 

Another important characteristic of the steel is that it is enriched with tungsten and carbon (0.8%). These two elements allow the blades to reach a hardness level of 59 HRC in the Rockwell scale. With this level of hardness, the blades are easy to hone, which is not the case for most blades made of other types of Japanese steel. We recommend you to use a whetstone to sharpen the blades, but you can also use a sharpening steel to hone them before every usage.

The blades of these knives also stand out for their hammered surface. This is done by a mechanical press, and the dimples that are formed on the surface make the blades less sticky for the foods when they are being cut. In addition, the hammered surface also enhances the original look of the knives.

Moreover, the handles are made of ebony wood. This material is mostly used in the manufacturing of luxurious items. In the cutlery industry, ebony wood is mostly used for high-end knives.Cooks appreciate this material thanks to its durability and resistance to humidity, as well as for its natural beauty with elegant dark tones.

Each handle is varnished so that it can resist better humidity. Their oval shape provides a comfortable grip for both right and left handed cooks. The bottom end of each handle has the Japanese character "Tiger" engraved on it, which is just another authentic detail that embellishes the overall look of the knives.

This Wusaki Ebony AUS8 set is sold in a black, robust box. The elegance of its packaging makes this set a great option to offer as a present to anyone passionate about fine cutlery. The interior of the box is filled with rigid foam so that the knives can remain well protected at all times.

Finally, to take care of your knives, we recommend you to wash them by hand with a sponge and a bit of mild soap. Wipe them well after washing them so that no humidity traces appear on them once they dry up. Then, store them in a safe, dry place such as in a knife block or a in a chef roll bag.

It is also important to mention that the first time that you'll take the knives out of the box, the blades will be covered with a bit of protection oil. This is completely normal, and all you need to do is to rinse them off before the first usage.
