This blade set is crafted with the highest quality carbon-rich steel, with 12 degree cutting edges, and is also stain and rust-resistant. You'll be able to cut through even the most delicate ingredients with ease. The set includes a 7 inch vegetable knife, an 8.5 inch slicing knife, and a 5 inch utility knife, so you'll have a blade for everything. Don't worry about using them too much either, because you'll be able to sharpen them up thanks to the included whetstone. The designs on the blades themselves are elegant and make for a great decoration piece when they're not in use.
