Black Ceramic 3-Piece Knife Set
The Kikusumi Black Ceramic 3-Piece Knife Bundle combines imaginative design, expert craftsmanship, and modern technology to create knives that are sharp, lightweight, and precise.
Each Black Ceramic blade is made over the course of a 45-day process from Kikusumi's proprietary blend of premium quality zirconium oxide, which is harder than steel. After their shape is formed, the blades are put through a cold isostatic press before being fired in a bell kiln above 2700°F for at least 4 days. An intelligent temperature control system keeps the temperature stable throughout the firing for a tighter weave between ceramic molecules, which in turn makes the blade more durable. All Kikusumi knife blades then undergo a second firing to emblazon them with an exclusive red Kikusumi logo that adds artisan luxury to the minimalist design.
Each blade is sharpened by hand to a precise 11-13° angle that stays sharper and holds its edge longer than their steel counterparts, and finished with a sleek, perfectly balanced ambidextrous knife handle designed to fit in your hand comfortably. The ergonomic shape is based on traditional Japanese design and features flowing contours that hug the curves of the hand. Complete with a soft tactile grip, you won't have to worry about is slipping, even when wet.
The 3-Piece Chef Knife Set contains knives for different jobs. The 7" Gyuto Chef Knife is ideal for cutting large quantities of food with ease. The 5" Japanese Santoku Knife is perfectly suited for precision peeling and slicing, while the 3" Paring Knife makes quick work of trimming and peeling fruit and vegetables. Each one even comes complete with a custom fit protective sheath to keep them in top condition until you need to use them again.
