Gourmet Retailer Editors’ Pick 2017

Once again we honored and frankly overjoyed that we were once again awarded the Gourmet Retailers Editor’s Pick Award for the second year in a row! As we look back at this year we are thankful for all the hard work, dedication and passion from everyone on the Cangshan Cutlery Company team.

The A Series utilizes rich, luscious African Blackwood to accentuate the subtle curves and elegant silhouette of the knife. Form and function seamless blend together to create a knife both beautiful and practical. Each knife is forged and handcrafted from Swedish Sandvik ® 12C27 Steel boasting a 58 +/- 2 on the Rockwell Hardness Rating. All the knives are full tang and showcase dark, uniquely grained and ultra dense African Blackwood handles and feature an angled bolster designed to accommodate a natural, firm pinch grip. 2 knife blocks have been specifically designed to securely house a 15 piece knife set. The knife blocks are made from robust, dark toned Walnut which compliment the distinct knife handles. Both knife blocks are the same in form and create an elegantly balanced, sharp and asymmetrical silhouette. One of the knife blocks utilizes magnets that allow the user to split the block in half and store the 8 steak knives separate from the 7 foundational knives of the set.
