Complete with 6 knives capable of bringing culinary ambitions to life, it really is set to wow this Christmas Day. Endorsed by Celebrity Masterchef finalist, Sam Nixon, they have been designed with the highest of specifications in mind.


The set features:


Chef’s Knife

The perfect all-round knife for a variety of tasks in the kitchen, including chopping, dicing and slicing. With a broad blade finishing in a super sharp tip allowing you to rock the blade as you cut, it allows for complex and versatile cutting and despite its larger size, can easily achieve intricate julienning.


Santoku Knife

Featuring a wide sheepsfoot blade to meet a straight-edged front blade, the Santoku Knife allows for refined slicing across a wide range of food products. Lighter than the Chef’s Knife with less of a radius, a stable and powerful knife creates an effortless item that you can’t afford to be without.


Bread Knife

To easily saw through the bakery’s freshest loaves, our Bread Knife features a beautifully serrated blade, capable of cutting through soft bread whilst still preserving the shape and presentation. With an offset handle and generous blade length, you can easily cut all the way to the bottom of your loaf.


Slicing Knife

A slimmer, lighter version of a carving knife, allowing you to initiate a precise cut when you’d like to cut through meat thinly yet accurately.


Boning Knife

A flexible knife to pierce meat with easy and safety. Designed to cut close to the bone, it is extremely sharp and able to be maneuvered into tight places thanks to its slender blade tip.

All knives boast high carbon VG10 stainless steel blades with an above industry standard hardness of up to 62 HRc. Every knife has been designed with balance at the forefront of its properties.


The multi-layered Damascus steel blades provide an ultra-strong core coupled with flexible stainless steel allowing the edge to be honed to razor sharp precision, providing superior edge retention. As the Damascus blades are built up of many sandwiched layers covering the core of the blade, each knife is completely unique.


The handles are manufactured from Garolite, a resin based composite material lending itself to extreme strength and durability thanks to its moisture resistant attributes. The top choice of professionals.

Kevlar Shears

If you’re looking for something a bit different this Christmas, what about scissors designed to cut through material capable of stopping a bullet in its tracks?


In the early 19902, we were approached by a company supplying tools to the manufacturers of Kevlar who were struggling to cut their huge spools of material. This was causing lost production time and wasted fibre. We got straight to it and after much trial and error, we solved their cutting problem!


Our Kevlar shears were scientifically deigned by our directors and even left PhD students at the University of Sheffield stumped as to why and how they cut Kevlar so fantastically.


“Lots of tests were done, with electron micro graphs taken of the cutting edges and so on which were very interesting – under the huge magnification, the Kevlar cutting edge looked as if it had been curled back by being bashed with a hammer; the Kevlar sample was ragged and mangle but cut! They couldn’t work out how the scissors cut the Kevlar, so we now call it a black art.”


Great for cutting Kevlar in many applications, including protective clothing, bicycle tyres, mooring lines and racing sails; they certainly make cutting the impossible, possible.
