Looking to buy new kitchen knives, looking for a Chef’s Knife Set?

First we need to ask, what is the best Chef Knife or Knives and for what reasons are they the best and does this matter to me?

Well, for us a chef’s knife should be easy to handle, comfortable to hold and hold securely as the last part is, they must be able to carry a very fine, sharp edge that can stand up to lots of use.  And, let’s face it, you want a nice matching set of beautiful kitchen knives.

Here are our choices and why we like them..

1: Arrow Pattern Damascus Chef kitchen Knife Set.

This Arrow patterned Damascus knife set with Sapele Wood Handles.  Sapele Wood is a golden to dark reddish brown. Color tends to darken with age. These knives mainly display the common ribbon pattern however, Sapele is also known for a wide variety of  other figured grain patterns, such as: pommele, quilted, mottled, wavy, beeswing, and fiddleback which will obviously appear and be seen on some of these knives, the joy of handmade and natural products is no 2 things are ever truly identical.
These blades are delivered with one of the sharpest edges we here have ever seen, or felt.  There is nothing in our kitchens that can offer resistance to the cutting edge of these superior chef’s knives, except maybe our sideboards and cupboards.
The shear beauty of these knives is undeniable and we have a set hanging with pride of place in our kitchen!
