Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Messermeister Kawashima 5-Piece Magnet Block Set. This magnetic wood block comes with the Kawashima 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 6-inch Utility Knife, 8-inch Chef's Knife, and 10-inch Slicer. The paring knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The utility knife has a narrow, straight blade and sharp tip to handle detail work, along with slicing and chopping. The chef's knife is an all-purpose knife that can mince herbs, dice vegetables, and slice through thick rinds and large cuts of meat. The slicer has a pointed tip and narrow blade for controlled slicing.
This collection was created in partnership with Japanese bladesmith Shoichi Kawashima. This knife features san mai blade construction using SG2 powdered steel. The blade boasts 64 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention, with a 15-degree edge angle on each side and a Japanese kiritsuke-style tip. The handle is made from walnut-colored Pakkawood, with an eco-brass bolster.
Hand wash and dry. Made in Japan.
