Light catering equipment specialist Mitchell & Cooper has brought the Chroma Type 301 knife range into its portfolio.
Designed by the F.A. Porsche studio, the knives combine a stainless steel blade and Japanese 301 steel for the triangular handle. The addition of a metal ‘pearl’, which demarcates the end of the blade, is said to provide extra control when cutting, whilst also ensuring safety during use.
Hand sharpened by a master specialising in the traditional Japanese V-shape design, the knives are said to have a light weight and delicate feel. This sharpening method is claimed to provide a sharper blade and ensure it remains sharper for longer.
The Chroma Type 301 range consists of a variety of knives, from chef’s knives – available in multiple sizes – to filleting, carving, boning and paring knives. The range also includes Japanese styles such as the Santoku knife, for dicing vegetables, and the Sashimi knife, suitable for fine slicing.
Also available through Mitchell & Cooper is the starter set, which consists of the Santoku, carving and paring knife.
