Product Description

Nihon X50 Knife Set 5 Piece

This set of 5 kitchen knives from our Nihon knife range includes a 9cm paring, 13cm utility, 15.5cm chefs, 23cm bread and 25cm carving knife.

Designed with Japanese tradition in mind, our Nihon X50 range combines stunning carbonised ash wood handles with German X50 steel for a superior cutting edge.

The range features Japanese inspired blade shapes which are composed of steel referred to as X50CrMoV15. This denotes the use of 0.5% carbon for outstanding edge retention and 15% chrome for high corrosion resistance. Molybdenum and vanadium (MoV) also work to further strengthen the blade and improve stain resistance. The collection has an official Rockwell hardness rating (HRC) of 56±2 ensuring durabiity and easy sharpening.

Each handle in the Nihon range is crafted from carbonised ash wood, a process in which the wood is baked to remove moisture content resulting in a highly durable, richly toned handle.

25 Year guarantee.

Please note under the Criminal Justice Act 1988 (as amended) we are only allowed to sell knives to persons aged 18 and over.

Care Instructions

Guidelines for care:
  • Do not use knives on marble, glass or ceramic boards as this will dull the blade
  • To maintain sharpness, we recommend the use of our sharpening tools - details online
  • Ensure knives are stored safely and securely in one of our ProCook knife storage options
  • Do not place your knives in the dishwasher. Instead, we recommend wiping the knife with a warm wet cloth and drying immediately
