This naturally hygienic special wood blend is pressed with food-safe resin, which gives the ergonomically sculpted handle a silky feel and keeps it from slipping from your hand.

This technology measures the blade before sharpening, and calculates the exact angle of 14 degrees per side (for a total of 28 degrees) for each blade. The blade is then sharpened on a whetstone using precision robots. The result is an optimum cutting edge along the entire length of the blade, resulting in an extremely high initial cutting potential and exceptionally long edge retention.
