This useful set contains the three knives essential to any kitchen and is great for cooks who are just getting started or are upgrading their cutlery. The knives come in a padded box, making the set an ideal gift. The knives in this collection are an 8-inch chef's knife for rocking through chopping and mincing jobs, a 6-inch utility knife for slicing vegetables and bread and for carving tasks, and a 3-1/2-inch paring knife for peeling and cleaning fruits and vegetables.
For strength, Chef Cutlery knives are forged from single pieces of high-carbon stainless steel. The tough, synthetic handles of these Executive Series knives, in the traditional three-rivet style, have full tangs. These are first-rate, heavy, durable knives that take and hold sharp edges and carry a lifetime warranty against defects. Though they are dishwasher-safe, fine knives such as these should be hand washed. --Fred Brack
