New condition - 21st century - Handmade in South Asia

Set with four beautiful cook’s knives made of Damascus steel.
Each knife has a unique pattern as they were handmade in artisanal fashion.

The history of Damascus steel goes back hundreds of years. The legend mentions Damascus knives so strong that they could cut the barrel of a gun and able to split a falling hair. These are of course legends, though it does indicate how special the knives are.

The grip of each knife is made of red lacquered wood.
The pattern on the blade is unique at every knife. This is caused by the artisanal melting process that is at the basis of these knives. A pattern that looks like running water is typical for the steel of a Damascus knife.

The knives are in new condition and have never been used.
Our company imports these knives exclusively from South Asia. They are not available in stores.

Technical specifications:
Hand forged, sharp blade of 1,095 and 15N20 high and low carbon steel, with more than 200 layers.
Detailed forging process (checked by an optical lens).
Precision heat treatment methods were use, so the sharpest edges are visible.
The hardness of the cook’s knives: 55 HRC on the Rockwell scale.

Characteristics of the knives: razor sharp, durable and anti-rust.

Long bread knife:
A total length of 37.5 cm.
The blade is 0.2 cm thick.
A blade width of 4 cm.
It has a net weight of 225 grams.

Long/narrow thin cook’s knife:
A total length of 30 cm.
The blade is 0.2 cm thick.
A blade width of 2.7 cm.
It has a net weight of 163 grams.

Santoku cook’s knife:
A total length of 28 cm.
The blade is 2 cm thick.
A blade width of 4.5 cm.
It has a net weight of 190 grams.

Tour down knife:
A total length of 21 cm.
The blade is 0.2 cm thick.
A blade width of 2.5 cm.
It has a net weight of 109 grams.


The maintenance of the knives:
Damascus steel is very special, an artisanal product with a high carbon value. This has as a consequence that the Damascus knives need special care for use and is best not to use a detergent when it is washed. It is recommended to clean these knives with water after use, dry them and provide them with a layer of (olive) oil. This way they keep their natural qualities.

    dear sir,

    The items are exactly as we discribed.
    The main issue here is that you bought a Damast knife and did not look up how to take care of it. Damast steel needs to be oiled after use. you'll have no problem finding this info in great detail when you google it.

    best regards,

    Il pacco con l’ordine si è bloccato in Francia quando avrebbe dovuto arrivare in Italia. Il venditore ha detto che avrebbe provveduto, staremo a vedere.

    Dear sir,

    The postal service made a mistake. We have done many phone calls and worked hard to get it back. We received it back eventually and resent it to you. We hope it will reach you soon and safe.

    best regards,

    L'acier des couteaux n'est pas très inoxydable. Dommage car ils sont de belle facture...
