Michael Symon's Cutlery breaks new ground for performance-first, professional quality knives at a really affordable price point. The line is forged from German X50CrMoV15 high-carbon steel, and tempered to 56-58°HRC. This material is a smart and proven choice for keen, long-lasting edges that resharpen easily. The blades are ground thin and polished with a slight 18° bevel per side, resulting in a fast and precise edge that lies somewhere between sturdy German blades and razor-sharp Japanese blades. The blade material is highly non-corrosive and durable; there are really no special maintenance requirements! The knives have a short handle bolster that does not extend to the heel, so the entire length of the blade can be used and easily sharpened. Full tangs are riveted to synthetic, wood-grained, G10 fiberglass resin handles. G10 handles are known to be one of the world's strongest handle materials and the comfortable, traditional shape has a textured surface for improved grip, even when wet. And while only time will tell, this G10 handle paired with a fully-forged, full-tang, X50CrMoV15 blade inspires great confidence for a very long life. Still, as with all quality knives, we recommend hand washing to keep them from getting dinged around in the dishwasher. The cutlery is well-shaped, balanced, comfortable, fast and very sharp. It is also backed by Ergo Chef with a limited lifetime warranty. Definitely a contender for best-buy!
