Today on Warehouse Hunts we’ve dug up this beautiful set of Type 301 knives from Chroma Cutlery, designed by F.A. Porsche himself. Yes THAT Porsche, the same man who designed the classic Porsche 911. These beautifully designed and razor sharp blades could truly be considered the uh, Cadillac of kitchen knives.
Included in the set are a seven and a quarter inch Santoku, an eight inch carving knife, and a three and a quarter inch paring knife. They come packaged in this beautiful box, protected by a tight-fitting foam cushion.
The first thing you’re going to notice about these knives is the sleek design. No surprise, considering the designer. Each knife is made from a single piece of stainless steel, the handle tapering directly into the blade with no seam. The only mark of the delineation is a metal “pearl” indicating where the handle ends.
The handles feel very comfortable to hold. The differences in size and shape of each lend you the optimum grip for the distinct cutting task. There’s a reason these knives are favored by gourmet chefs.
The Type 301 series is so named for the high quality Japanese 301 steel used in the construction. These knives come razor sharp right out of the box, having been carefully sharpened by a master’s hand.
The Type 301 series from Chroma Cutlery are beautiful, functional and affordable. The only real downside I can see is that they’re not dishwasher safe, which is only a problem if you’re lazy like I am. With proper care, these knives will serve you in the kitchen for many years to come.
