David Mellor - Chef's Starter Knife Set
This product is currently sold out.
Designer Corin Mellor's new interpretation of the traditional fully forged professional chef's knife, appealing to those who take good cooking seriously.
The stainless steel tang running right through the handle and the large stainless rivets give these knives their special visual quality.
These knives exploit the latest techniques in manufacturing. The high carbon stainless steel blades are hot drop forged and then ice hardened to minus 80°c, producing an exceptionally sharp, hard and durable blade. Blades are then taper ground. Handles are acetal resin. These knives are not only technically excellent, they are especially well balanced and comfortable in the hand.
This carefully selected set of the 4 most essential kitchen knives contains:
- Paring knife 10cm
- Cook's knife 12cm
- Cook's knife 15cm
- Chef's knife 18cm
David Mellor knife sets come in specially designed Birchwood boxes with sliding lid. These make perfect gift sets and the handmade boxes can provide permanent safe storage for your knives.
