Knives Included in the Set
The Tamahagane San Tsubame 3 Piece Knife Set includes the smallest Tsubame knife in the range, ideal for cutting up little pieces of fruit or vegetables, peeling and decorative work. The paring knives share the same shape handle as the larger knives, but a smaller version but are so sharp they can be used as razors.
Then you will also receive a Tamahagane Tsubame Sanotoku Knives in 16cm. These Santoku knives make really good chopping knives and the lamb's foot point allows you to do other things with the knives, such as mincing. These knives have a hammered finish so food is less likely to stick to the blade. The knives look absolutely gorgeous and are some of the finest blades from the Tamahagane factory.
The most popular is the Chef's Knife at 21cm which is also a multi purpose knife but would be better suited for meat.
The Tsubame range has a reputation for being the sharpest blade this is because of the consistency and skill of Nosawa San's factory. Tamahagane blades regularly out perform better known brands in CATRA tests and tend to be the sharpest out the box knives available. These chef knives are particularly pleasant to look at, with the misty stainless steel material used in the construction and the hammered pattern to the blades.
Please note that sets are exclusively bundled together by Knives from Japan but are sent individually when posted to you.
