The H1 Series expertly counterbalances smooth contours and sharp, distinct angles against the backdrop of gorgeous, warm wood tones. Rich, full textures serve to highlight the elegant, yet raw beauty of a professional knife made for creatives. Each knife is forged and handcrafted from high-alloy German Steel[X50CrMoV15] with a 58 +/- 2 on the Rockwell Hardness Rating. Precise heat treatment of this stain resistant steel gives each blade superior durability and outstanding edge retention. All the knives feature flush seams where the strong Teak wood handles meet the full tang of the blade and have an angled bolster designed to accommodate a natural, firm pinch grip. The fine edged blades all have an incredibly sharp 16 degree Asian style edge. A genuine leather knife roll elevates the distinct design of the series while securely housing 3 essential knives for safe transportation with a reinforced inner lining and magnetic flaps.
