Hitohira Futana S3 Nashiji Kitchen Knife Set Cherry Wood Handle (Gyuto 210mm & Petty 150mm)
The Futana series is a great series for anyone getting into Japanese kitchen knives for elegant aesthetics and beautifully finished wooden handles. The S3 line is features a fully stainless blade for ease of maintenance, whereas the SB line boasts Blue Super carbon steel that will hold an incredible edge for a long while (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent it from rusting, however).
We highly recommend the Futana blades as gifts for culinary students, professional cooks, young professionals moving into their first apartment, newly weds and more!
This set is made up of the two most useful knives in our opinion; a Gyuto and a utility knife. A Gyuto is an all-purpose blade that is incredibly useful for any cooks and a petty (utility) knife can be used to cut small fruits, vegetables, and even some smaller cuts of meats. (and many many more things, like cutting through plastic wrapping from a grocery trip!)
This Hitohira set is an amazing Christmas gift that will bring joy to the recipient for years to come.
