The MAC Original Series was first created over 40 years ago with a new concept in kitchen knife design. First, they chose a steel that allowed to create a thin, flexible blade that is light weight, easy to sharpen, and maintains its edge extremely well. While most people remember MAC knives for their extreme out-of-the-box sharpness and the duration which it lasts, these other features were key to our success. The thin (1.5-2.0mm), flexible blade slides easily through foods without wedging into cuts like a traditional European forged blade and the light weight allows you to use the knife without making your hand and arm tired. Next, they rounded the tip for safety and elevated the handle to create better knuckle clearance when working on a cutting board. Lastly, a hole was punched into the blade to hang the knife.
