This exclusive set includes a top-quality carbon steel Gyuto knife from renowned bladesmith Kikuichi, and a professional-quality WorkSharp Culinary E5 sharpener and upgrade kit to keep your knife in peak condition.
Gyuto is the Japanese equivalent to the western chef's knife, and the Kikuichi Elite Carbon Steel Gyuto Knife is an all-purpose knife designed in this style. The blade is thinner and narrower than a standard chef's knife. It is suitable for use with meat, fish, and vegetables. Made from SK-4 carbon steel, this knife has a fine grain to hold a very keen edge. The blade is sharpened to 61 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention. The eco-wood handle is triple-riveted. Carbon steel is not stainless and should be dried immediately to prevent rust.
The Work Sharp Culinary E5 Kitchen Knife Sharpener uses controlled speeds, timed cycles, and professional sharpening belts to sharpen knives quickly and easily, with professional results. Simply touch the button to select between three programs -- shape, sharpen, and refine -- and the E5 adjusts the time and speed of the sharpening cycle. It turns off automatically when sharpening is complete. Use the Upgrade Kit to sharpen both 15-degree and 20-degree edge knives.
