Do not be fooled into thinking that these are just another one of those ‘one piece of metal’ mass produced knives that can be found all over the Globe. The sophisticated laminated stainless steel blades surround a cutting core of Molybdenum Vanadium (please not the Boning knife is made of a single piece of Molybdenum Vanadium). The 18/8 stainless steel hollow handle does not feature any holes or cavities which is an extremely important and fundamental hygiene consideration. A perfect range of light, well balanced knives. This range is popular amongst people who do not like a heavy knife or suffer from weak wrists. This small laminated preparation knife is ideal for small vegetables and fruit.
