Damascus Series Features:

  • Beautiful 64-layer Damascus-style steel reminds us of the centuries-old Japanese tradition of folding the steel for increased strength.
  • 2.0-2.5mm thin blades for less wedging into cuts and for producing a sharper knife.
  • Original Molybdenum steel has better edge-retention and is easier to sharpen than most other brands.
  • Western-style shapes with a handle that is in-line with the spine of the blade and a pointed tip.
  • The added bolster on these knives concentrates the weight of the knife in the center of your hand when using a chef’s grip. The added weight helps to drive the knife through hard/dense foods such as carrots apples and onions without having to use a thicker blade. The bolster also provides a smoother grip area for your thumb when using a chef’s grip to pinch the blade.
  • Razor-sharp edge that made MAC knives famous over 40 years ago.
  • Completely tapered from spine to edge creating a V-shaped blade that glides through cuts with ease.
  • Perfectly balanced weight distribution creates a sense of comfort when holding the knife and keeps you in control of the blade.
  • Slightly curved edge allows you to use almost any style of cutting whether it is a European rocking motion or a Japanese slicing motion.
  • Over-sized Pakka wood handle has the look and feel of natural wood but lasts much longer.
  • Comfortable balance light-weight sharp edge and thin blade all combine to create a precision tool that is easy to handle and control; reducing the risk of hurting yourself while working on the cutting board.
