Set of 3 Tactical Kitchen Knives

About 6 years ago, I started making custom kitchen knives (my wife wanted one, and so as a knifemaker and a great husband…), and ever since I’ve made 200 or so of them.  They have all been very similar in style and design, but I always wanted to make a set that any professional or at-home chef could enjoy.  So, about 2 years ago, I started to experiment with various blade styles and coatings.  I have always like the Japanese style of blade (but you already know that based on the Kwaiback)!

It was really important to me that the coating we chose held up to frequent use and washing, that edge retention was excellent, and that they were all very functional!  We make “tools for hard work,” and I didn’t see why kitchen knives should be an exception!  Plus, I wanted to stick with our “tactical” roots, so the set is all PVD Black with Carbon Fiber handles (in case you’re attacked by Ninjas while cooking dinner)!

While we were still in the prototyping stage, we had the set tested by Executive Chef Josef Karst, who gave us some terrific feedback that led to a small design change.  Check out the YouTube video I made that features Chef Josef and the three knives in action:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nllHSJxfRYQ

Below are the specs for the set of three Tactical Kitchen Knives -- from top to bottom in the first photo: the Usuba, the Santoku, and the Honesuki!  I think you’ll be very happy with this set in your home (or your spouse will be, if you’re not the master cook!).
