JKC Special Sets
This collection is hot roll forged from three-layer steel. With a central core of AUS 10 laminated with SUS 410, these knives are finished with a machine hammered tsuchime.
The core of AUS 10 holds a magnificent edge that is consummately easy to sharpen whilst the soft outer layers will be very simple to thin in years to come resulting in a knife that will give many years of super-sharp service. The tsuchime finish means that the blade is less prone to sticking to oily, fatty or starchy food.
Since its introduction a couple of years ago these have become one of our most popular ranges with busy chefs.
