    New 3 pc Asian Style Kitchen Set

    Hello All,
    I hope this end-of--summer weather is treating everyone well. Here is something new Iíve been playing around with after several requests/orders, even though I make a lot of kitchen knives nowadays, these are something new for me. I hope you like them.
    Thanks again,
    J.



    These Asian style kitchen knives have a bit of tradition to them and a whole lot of my own influence. All three of these blades are made from my 400 plus layer "forced random" pattern damascus forged from 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels. The Sujihiki-style (top) has a chisel grind and a 7 7/8" cutting edge (13" oal), the Kiritsuke-style (middle) has a double grind and a 7 1/4" cutting edge (12 1/2" oal) and the Pettsuki-style (bottom) also has a double grind and a 4 7/8" cutting edge (9 3/4" oal). At the thickest points of the spine, these knives are approx. 3/16" thick or a bit less. All three knives have fullered "button" guards with my "antiqued" finish and beveled, 2 piece wooden handles. The handles themselves are stabilized and multi-dyed Presentation-grade Maple Burl wood with throats/spacers of matching stabilized and single dyed Maple Burl wood with an etched carbon steel set pin in each towards the back of the handles.
    Price, for all three pieces: $2,850.00, plus shipping.

    Agree with Rookie
    4mm is way too thick for a kitchen /chef blade,
    Have you tested the cutting ability on veg?

    Very pretty knives so will look nice in a home cooks kitchen.

    Sorry you don't like them guys. I actually get a lot of requests for thicker kitchen knives since they seem hard to come by and I'm always willing to accommodate. As to cutting, they work great on veg. (even delicate skinned tomatoes) and even better on meat. My favorite cutter, in my own kitchen, is a 7 1/2" blade with a 3/16" thick spine but, I prefer my Chef knives to be much thinner. It's all personal preference.

    Hey, no worries. If I listened to negative comments & didn't didn't do my own thing... I wouldn't have forged new ground and fed my kids for the last decade or so. Again, no worries... everyone has their own thing.

    Lovely looking knives J
    While I prefer my kitchen knives on the thinner side - I would have no problem adding some gorgeous knives like this to my kitchen knife block.
    I really like your "fullered button" guards - very nice, and the maple burl is always very nice.

    Well done.
