ProCook has been creating elite kitchenware for more than 20 years and its latest launch celebrates the illustrious history of Japanese kitchen knives. The Damascus 67 range (from £34.99) offers incredible quality and exacting execution, taking inspiration from the craftsmanship and skills that originated in the Echizen region of Japan. Japanese kitchen knives are made in the same way as the country’s famed samurai swords and, as a result, the Damascus 67 range showcases a level of artistry that’s hard to beat.
The knives are crafted from authentic Japanese Damascus stainless steel with an inner core of carbon steel encased in 66 layers of rust-resistant steel. Each ProCook Damascus 67 knife is stone-ground to a traditional 12-degree angle providing incredible sharpness and lasting durability. The layering effect in the manufacturing process creates a unique pattern on each knife, meaning no two are alike.
With a handle made from G10, a layered fibreglass cloth that’s soaked in epoxy resin, compressed and baked to create a stunning, strong material, each knife is stamped with the Japanese symbol for strength and finished with a red band. All of the knives in the range (which includes utility, santoku, nakiri, bread, carving and chefs knives as well as a three-knife set) have a 25-year guarantee. Choose a ProCook knife block to house your new purchases and ensure they are showcased to perfection.
