Designed by Apogee Culinary and manufactured by Yaxell in Japan’s cutlery capital, Seki City, these FDA-approved kitchen knives offer a professional edge for virtually any kitchen task. They’re made from nitrogen-enriched American BD1N steel, which has been heat treated to a Rockwell Hardness of 63 for excellent slicing performance; to see this steel in action, check out the video below of a recent rope-cut test. The handle is made from black resin and linen canvas micarta, which is polished to a smooth finish for grip, and held together by stainless steel rivets. Rounding out each knife is an end cap made from 18/10 stainless steel.
Note: At checkout, choose one small knife (3.5" Paring or 6" Utility) and one large knife (7.5" Santoku, 8" Chef, 9" Slicing, or 10" Chef). At checkout, you may choose to add other knives to build out your set. This drop is limited to 200 units. Click here for information about shipping regulations.
Designed for a natural cutting motion, this small, versatile knife allows users to work with precision. Use it to skin vegetables, remove seeds from small peppers, make garnishes, and more.
Midway between a paring knife and chef’s knife, the 6-inch utility knife is equally suited for trimming chicken fat as it is for chopping cloves of garlic.
Designed for chopping, the Santoku features a deep-bellied blade with a long curve. The blade’s shape makes chopping large quantities of food quick and easy, and its wide handle helps to maintain a steady grip.
With a wide-bellied 8-inch blade, this chef’s knife makes quick work of a wide range of cutting tasks. It’s great for tearing through large cuts of meat and thick-skinned veggies like yams, squash, and carrots.
The 9-inch slicing knife's slender blade shape is great for cutting vegetables and roasts into uniform slices. Use it to rip apart ribs and pork chops, carve a turkey, or slice fruits like cantaloupe and watermelon.
With its long serrated edge, the 9-inch bread knife makes it easy to saw through day-old baguettes and thick loaves of sourdough. Place your thumb on the spine of the blade for extra control.
With a wide-bellied 10-inch blade, this chef’s knife makes quick work of a wide range of cutting tasks. It’s great for tearing through large cuts of meat and thick-skinned veggies like yams, squash, and carrots.
