This Xituo Starter Knife Set includes a 3,5″ Paring Knife and 8″ Chef’s Knife. The Paring Knife is ideal for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. The Chef’s Knife is designed for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and more. With its curved belly, the Chef’s knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.
The Xituo Series features a Damascus pattern on each blade, created by the forging of 67 layers of damascus steel folded over the thick VG-10 core of premium cobalt alloy steel. This process is finished very delicately and makes for a truly impressive appearance. The 60° Rockwell Hardness is hard enough to hold an edge, but easier to sharpen than super hard steel. Handcrafted in Japan with a lifetime warranty.
