The Nagasaki Knives ($115 ea.) are an international blend of Japanese steel, German manufacturing skill, and American kitchen knife designs. All five blades included in the collection have a core of Japanese VG-10 steel and 67 more layers beaten Damascus style. They’ve all been treated with cryogenic nitrogen for durable sharpness and been sharpened using Solinger Dünnschliff. Each knife also comes with a Micarta handle in either black or brown.

The Chef’s knife has an 8″ blade and weighs just 0.45 lbs. The Nakiri knife has a 7″ blade and weighs 0.5 lbs. The Nakiri knife with hollow edge cuts very thin and soft materials like cheese. It has a 7” blade and weighs 0.49 lbs. The agile Paring knife features a 3.5″ blade and weighs 0.3 lbs. and finally, the hammer-finished Santoku knife is also 7″ long and 0.49 lbs. Manufactured in the Knife Capital of the world, Solinger, Germany, the Nagasaki Knife Collection is probably the last and best set your kitchen will ever need.
