These are durable, Japanese blades that you don't have to tell everyone else not to touch for fear of them being left out and rusted, and yet not be frustrated with when you use them yourself. The knives are comfortably weighted and balanced with a handle design that accommodates the various grips required, along with a thickness and length that won't leave your hand falling off the edge. Sharp, sleek, sturdy, and stainless: the Wasabi line does not disappoint. Whether to start or supplement your set, this knife is sure to change your kitchen experience just as it has for professional and amateur chefs worldwide.
