The Chikara 3-piece starter knife set is an elegant, reliable option for anyone looking to experiment with forged cutlery. Each knife is forged from a single, solid piece of high-carbon Japanese steel, which is a type of steel known for its resistance to stains and rust. The design and composition gives the knife superior strength and power as well as balance. In fact, the word “chikara” translates to “energy and power” which is a very accurate representation of this 3-piece set. The knives have expertly balanced hilts to give you complete control while using them which is reinforced by the full tang extending through the ergonomic, heat and water-resistant handle, and the incredibly sharp edge of each blade lets you cut through tough foods with ease. Be sure to wash these knives by hand to maintain their strength and durability, and enjoy a limited lifetime warranty when you purchase!
