Kitchen knives must be first and foremost a formidable tool, possessing very specific attributes that endow them with the ability to process food properly. That's why Jay Knives brings you this Chef + Fork Knife Set. Both knives in this set are completed, high end, superior, and refined. The blades are hand-forged, heat-treated, ground, polished, and at times etched and engraved – all by traditional means – 100% hand made. This set includes a 5" chef knife and a 6" fork knife with the same hardness of 58 HRC and Damascus finish.
Damascus blades will require more attention, since the higher carbon metals that help create the pattern present a higher risk of corrosion. We recommend cleaning the blade after it has come into contact with moisture and especially acidic materials like apples, steak, or fingers.
