Product Description

Nihon X50 Knife Set 5 Piece and Wooden Block

This set of 5 kitchen knives from our Nihon knife range includes paring, utility, chef, bread and carving knives and comes with a wooden knife block.

Inspired by Japanese tradition, Nihon knives possess strength and pinpoint precision for the best performance. The knives in this range have a stainless-steel blade with a super-sharp cutting edge which is stone ground by hand, and a rear bolster for perfect balance. Coupled with a smooth European Beech handle these knives are superbly comfortable to hold and a joy to use.

The stainless steel used in the Nihon range is referred to as X50CrMoV15 and contains 0.5% carbon for outstanding edge retention. 15% chrome (Cr15) provides high corrosion resistance making the steel more resilient to tarnishing and general stains, and molybdenum and vanadium (MoV) further strengthen the blade and improve stain resistance. The Rockwell hardness rating of these blades is 55±2.

The set comes complete with an American oak knife block that is designed to hold up to six 90° bolster knives depending on size.

The ProCook rectangular knife block is perfect for smaller spaces due to its compact size and features rubber feet to protect your work surfaces.

To care for your knife block store in an airy position away from direct sunlight and other heat sources to avoid drying out. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. We recommend oiling regularly to preserve and enrich the wood. Use vegetable, olive, rapeseed or nut oil. Not recommended for dishwasher use or immersing in water.

25 year guarantee - 1 year knife block - ProCook design, manufacture and supply innovative quality products at unbeatable prices - why pay more?

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