This set includes three of the most useful knives in the kitchen: chef's knife (8" blade), carving knife (6" blade), and paring knife (3½" blade). The chef's knife's broad, heavy blade makes it easy to perform challenging tasks involving chopping, slicing, and dicing. The carving knife is excellent for maintaining full control while cutting uniform slices from whole hams, turkeys, and roasts. The paring knife is the perfect knife for peeling, decorating, and other tasks that require precision.
The Scanpan Classic is an attractive and simple kitchen knife series featuring high functionality; it is designed to elegantly match the needs of modern kitchens. Made from forged German steel with a 30º grinding angle and a conical ground edge for optimum cutting performance, each blade is produced using a special grinding process that delivers enduring sharpness; each blade is optimally tempered to a hardness rating of 56. The Classic knife offers superb weight distribution and balance and boasts an ergonomic handle that provides a comfortable and secure grip.
Every Scanpan Classic knife is tested individually for hardness according to the Rockwell method before it is approved. The testing method leaves a small dot in the steel - a mark guaranteeing that the fully-forged knife has undergone the test for professional heat treatment and perfect hardening.
