The Cold Steel Kitchen Classics series feature high performance ice tempered, cryo-quenched and precision flat ground 400 series steel blades for exceptional cutting performance. All models in the series come with a razor sharp edge that lasts and lasts, and some have serrated edges uniquely appropriate to the tasks they were designed to do. Our Kitchen Classics are available for purchase as single items, or as a complete set. The set includes an attractive oak counter-top stand, one of each of the knives shown here, and 6 steak knives.
