This carving set is wonderful for serving. This precision-forged knife is made from a single piece of steel, meaning it's incredibly sturdy and balanced. It's also been honed and hand-finished by skilled artisans. The unique blade of this knife is what sets it apart from the competition. It's made from a special formula steel that has been perfected over 280 years and treated with Zwilling's signature ice-hardening technique. This results in a blade that is harder, sharper, and less likely to stain or chip than other knives.
