Looking for an affordable set of Japanese knives? Introducing the 555 series knife duo forged in Seki, Japan ideal for all your cooking needs: the Chef Knife and Utility Knife Set. This set includes two DSR-1K6 high carbon stainless steel knives that are designed to handle all your chopping, slicing, and dicing tasks with ease.

The Chef Knife, with its 180mm blade, is the perfect tool for preparing most of your daily ingredients like vegetables, fruits, and meats. It features a sharp, stainless steel blade containing 0.6% of carbon and added molybdenum that is durable and long-lasting. The plywood handle provides a comfortable grip, ensuring precision and control while cutting.

The Utility Knife, with its 135mm blade, creates a nice contrast ideal for smaller tasks like peeling, trimming, and cutting. This knife is also constructed with the same sharp stainless steel blade and an ergonomic handle that allows for easy maneuverability and comfortable use.

Both knives are designed to be lightweight, making them easy to handle and control. Whether you're a professional chef or a home cook, this knife duo is a must-have for any kitchen.

With all products in stock, we take the opportunity to ensure that your new knives are fully inspected, hand-sharpened and sharp tested on a Professional BESS Certified Sharpness Tester.

This guarantees that your knives are ready to work right out the box.
