This professional 8-Piece Chef’s Set from Mundial of Brazil has some genuine advantages when compared to top quality cutlery from other manufacturers. These practical knives flex rather than break, sharpen easily, and aren’t expensive to replace if someone else “borrows” one of your good knives.
The Mundial 5600 series was designed for long term use by restaurant and food service professionals. Blades of cold-rolled stamped high carbon stainless steel are well tempered for hard use, and the full tangs give them enough durability to actually test the Mundial lifetime warranty. Grips are designed for safety in all types of conditions from wet and greasy to wet and freezing cold. The front bolster and dropped heel prevent the hand from slipping in either direction, and grips are wide enough to grab and twist without strain. Each knife is individually balanced when the anti-bacterial grip is added. Better balance and easier handling translate into fewer fatigue problems for those who use knives for many hours daily.
The set’s six knives include a meat slicing knife, cook’s knife, and offset sandwich knife plus three essential smaller knife styles with paring, boning, and utility blades. The diamond sharpening steel should only be used on the plain-edged knives in the set. A soft-sided carrying case provides room for this NSF-certified basic knife set and a few more essential items of your choice.
