I always thought a knife is a knife, I mean as far as kitchen knives go. Chicago, Henckles, Old Hickory, Farberware, Forschner, the list goes on and on!
Let me tell ya, you haven't cut with a knife until you have cut with something like this! These hand-made, hand-forged, layered knives are truly a pleasure to work with in the kitchen. You will be amazed at the ease in which they cut and sharpen! I threw away my 8 piece Chicago Cutlery set (not really) these two do it all.
They're almost to sharp! I mean scary sharp! If you have a tendency to cut yourself while slicing vegetables, you don't want these, you'll loose a digit!
These were made by Murray Carter, he has quite a story behind his training. Now living in Oregon, he offers hand-forging classes from time to time.
