- Cook's Utility, Cook's Knife, French Chef Knife

Ideal set of knives for the serious cook or chef. The chef's knife is the "go to" knife for the serious cook. The two cook's knives also have offset handles to keep your hand and knuckles above what you are chopping, mincing or dicing - similar to a Japanese Santoku Knife.
(Hand Wash VS Dishwasher)
Hand washing all fine cutlery is the preferred method of cleaning because:
- Hand washing prevents unnecessary microscopic dings on the blades' cutting edge.
- Recent government mandated changes to phosphate-free dish washing detergents creates a harsh environment for metals - including stainless steel blades and in particular our silver brushed aluminum handles.
- Dishwashers have evolved to higher temperatures for cleansing and drying that are incompatible with fine cutlery.
Some customers choose to use the dishwasher with varying results depending on their detergent, water mineral composition and dishwasher. The combination of these factors affect the pace and degree of oxidation experienced.
