Cangshan TX Series 1021295 Sandvik 14C28N Swedish Steel Forged TAI 3-Piece Knife Block Set, Walnut
TAI is the knife block for tomorrow’s kitchen. Minimal, essential and beautiful it encompasses the essence of Cangshan. Crafted from robust Walnut wood the knife block features two slots, securely housing a Chef’s and Paring knife combo. This knife block fits perfectly in smaller, modern kitchens while offering all the foundational knife functions needed by today’s home chef’s.
A chef wants a connection with the tools they use to create. Some prefer a light nimble knife while others work better with a heavy, large handled knife. Professional creatives also want their tools to aesthetically connect with their story. This is the reason we have 17 Patented and Patent Pending handle designs, some of which feature our unique Patented angled bolster that perfectly accommodates a natural, firm pinch grip.
Aesthetics must push into function. Every curve and angle is used to ensure a secure and comfortable hold on the handle. Our knives are exceptionally well balanced and every seam is flush. This means our knives feel great to grip and hold, work well for heavy kitchen use and are easy to keep clean and sanitary.
Premier Materials / Superior Manufacturing
A great knife comes from excellent materials. We use high alloy Swedish Steel in our premier knife lines. In our opinion Swedish steels offer the perfect mix of incredible hardness and durability with the ability to reach a hardness rating of 60 ±2 on the Rockwell Hardness Rating Scale. These steels take a phenomenally sharp edge and keep it up to 5 times longer than competing knives currently in the marketplace. That means a knife that stays sharper, longer.
Heat treatment is the key to a great knife. The fine grain of the material means a more stable internal structure which is why the steel is able to improve so much during heat treatment. Every blade goes through an ultra-precise 6 stage heat treatment, which brings out the best qualities of each steel. Even slight variations of a few degrees at any point in the process can cause the knife’s hardness to vary throughout the blade. This is the reason it took 2+ years of research and development to dial in the specific heat treatment process that would ensure our knives are both hard enough to take a sharp 16 degree edge, yet durable enough to keep that sharp edge during heavy kitchen use.
At the end of the day a knife needs to perform. Every Cangshan knife proudly can do just that. The quality and craftsmanship of the knives ensure they precisely and effectively perform their cutting functions giving the user a responsive and refined tactile experience that enhances and augments their skills and process.
