In Stock Item: 3-Piece Charybdis Whirlpool Damascus Chef Knife Set

$ 3,040.00

This 3-piece chef knife set will please the most demanding home or professional chef. It is the best of both worlds; beautiful and extremely functional, plus boasts blades hand-forged from R2, stainless Japanese cutlery steel. This is one of the highest quality Japanese steels available anywhere.

From our exclusive top-of-the-line "Charybdis" design series of chef knives, this set features a 240mm large chef knife, a 210mm all-purpose chef knife (also known as a gyuto) and a jewel-like 85mm small paring knife. 

Knife sizes are typically measured by blade size. If you are unfamiliar with millimeter blade sizing, this set features blades of approximately these sizes:

  • 9.5-inch large chef
  • 8-inch everyday chef
  • 3.3-inch small parer

These blades have been designed exclusively by and for Salter Fine Cutlery. Made with the best quality stainless Japanese steel called R2 damascus core powder metal die steel, they have an exceptional cutting edge and edge retention capabilities.

The striking whirlpool damascus gray finish with damascus wavy lines near the blade edge was hand-forged and created by our bladesmith in Japan. Each small whirlpool was made and added by hand! They have also been signed in kanji by the blade maker.

They have a full-tang construction, meaning the steel extends throughout the handle.

For the handles, we have chosen to add brass bolsters, exotic curly koa wood and cinnamon colored accents between the bolster and koa wood, plus along the tangs. The knives are excellently balanced for professional chefs.

The price shown is for the 3-piece knife set only.  Boxes, racks, or stands can be made to fit and are optional.

We offer custom, handcrafted sheaths, stands, wall racks or boxes to beautifully display or store your chef knife set. Please see our Custom Knife Storage Systems to make your selection.
