Using a sharp knife in the kitchen is more important than you might think. In fact, it’s safer to use a sharp knife than a dull one – a sharp knife will easily slice through anything, while a dull knife can slip and cut you. Nevertheless, you don’t have to worry about the sharpness of the Japanese Damascus steel knife set from Hexclad.
If you’re not familiar with Hexclad, it’s Gordon Ramsay’s favorite cookware brand. In fact, you may have seen it mentioned on Ramsay’s show Senior Level Leader on FOX. After using and loving it, he became a brand partner.
HexClad Hybrid Cookware is a combination of stainless steel and nonstick, and it’s extremely durable. However, HexClad’s Damascus Steel Japanese Knife Set is much like its cookware in that it’s high-end.
HexClad Damascus Japanese Knife Set, $299 (Orig. $499)
“These knives slice so well, it’s amazing,” Gordon Ramsay said in a press release. “Whether it’s preparing vegetables, slicing bread or deveining shrimp, it’s a perfect cut every time. From professional industry to home, I’ve always said that a good kitchen starts with knives. And they are the best in the business.
According to the product description, each knife is forged with 67 layers of Japanese Damascus steel (i.e. a very tough material) to create an extremely hard blade and razor-sharp edge for effortless slicing and dicing. Its blades also feature the Damascus pattern, while its handles are a beautiful rare forest green Pakka wood.
The set includes an 8 inch chef’s knife, an 8 inch serrated bread knife, a 7 inch santoku knife, a 5 inch utility knife and a 3.5 inch paring knife. It also comes with a 9 inch sharpening rod to keep your knives sharp for years.
As Ramsay said, this is a fantastic knife set and you get what you pay for – it regularly sells for $499. However, it’s currently on sale for $200 off, so if you’re in need of a new knife set and only want the best, you might want to act fast.
