In Japan, food falls somewhere between art and science. Dishes are often beautifully presented, but prepared with incredible precision. In order to work to such fine margins, Japanese chefs have always used ultra-sharp knives. The Damasukasu Japanese 3-Piece Master Chef Hanshu Knife Set lets you prepare food to high standards at home, with 12-degree blades made from ultra-hard steel. The set is now only $59.49 at the PopSci Shop with the holiday coupon code MerrySave15.
Just as Japanese chefs craft their dishes with exquisite care, Damasukasu knives are works of culinary art. Presented in a wood box, the set includes a 7-inch Nakiri vegetable knife, an 8.5-inch slicing knife, and a 5-inch utility knife.
Each knife is triple-riveted, with a full tang and a sharp 12-degree cutting edge. The blades are made from carbon-rich steel, which resists corrosion and staining.
In addition, the Damasukasu knives are nitrogen-cooled to improve their overall hardness and flexibility. As a result, they are graded at 62+ on the Rockwell hardness scale — a remarkable performance for kitchen knives.
The set is worth $299.99, but you can get it now for just $59.49 with code MerrySave15.
