The Artisan SRS 15 Collection

Fine Crafted Powdered Steel knives that "empower the Artisan in you!"

Artisan Chef Knife Collection

CarbonCrNiMoVTungsten
1.313---2.751.5---

Artisan knives also marketed under several new names are characterized by pure performance, extreme sharpness and edge holding capability that will endure even the rigors of a Top Chef. The powdered high speed steel (SRS-15) gives these knives immense strength and incredible hardness of up to HRC-64. The fine molecular structure of the powdered steel enables these thin blade knives to effortlessly glide through any task. This remarkable inner core is protected by a layer of softer (SUS 405) stainless steel on either side to enable ease of sharpening when needed which is not often on an Artisan. Each member of the Artisan collection is hand honed. These Japanese marvels I find attractive in their simplicity and clean look. I switched from western handles to superior,comfortable rosewood oval wa handles as the western style handles would shrink a bit in NA climate which is not as humid as Japan.?This is a handsome solution without any rough tang issue. I hope you like it.

Demand is high by savvy JP chefs for these knives only a small number are available outside of Japan. Artisan's will out cut and outperform many knives 2x's their price making them an incredible value. Often they become a chefs favorite go to knife for 90% of his or her tasks. It is my privilege to offer you these incredible edged cutting instruments. I am confident you will be thrilled and empowered with the performance of these special knives and that you too will be reaching for an Artisan often above your other knives.
