I am very happy to offer these wonderfully made, upscale Kitchen Knives. 8″ Blade of Japanese, 67 layer Tiny Wave pattern, Damascus Steel with a 440c cutting edge. Handle is a very attractive, Green Micarta. These knives are razor sharp and ground thinly for a long lasting cutting edge. These are not chopping thru bone knives but will provide you a lifetime of service so long as you care for them. No dishwasher cleaning please. Wash and dry these after each use.
