Kazan HAP40 Hammered Two Piece Set

+

We developed the Kazan line in partnership with a steelmaker in Kansai, Japan using HAP40, a powdered steel blend featuring high levels of Vanadium, Molybdenum, Cobalt and Tungsten. This results in a semi-stainless blade with exceptional edge retention. The blade is hand sharpened on several stones for great out the box sharpness.

Kazan features a hammered tsuchime finish, which prevents food from sticking to the blade. It's medium weight and has a beautiful gray wood handle, designed to be a bit more substantial than other Japanese knives so it's comfortable for those with larger hands. Kazan is made exclusively for Chubo.

Why we love them:  Kazan HAP40 stays sharp forever. They hold an edge better than any knife on our site and despite their incredible hardness, they are very responsive to sharpening stones.

Save 10% off the regular price of $380 when buying as a set.

Gyutou 210mm (8.2") x 1 and Petty 150mm (5.9") x 1
