Cangshan Cutlery has debuted its Everest line of cutlery, exclusively at Crate & Barrel.
The new line of knives were designed with input from Cangshan ambassador chef Thomas Keller. The knives feature a sleek, modern aesthetic with the knife handle’s slim profile emphasizing the simple, smooth lines of the knives, the company noted.
A singular mosaic rivet offsets the distinct handle. A uniquely tapered tang is said to make each knife comfortable and well balanced for precise cutting.
Every blade goes through the company’s six stage ULTRA6 heat treatment which Cangshan said brings out the best qualities of each steel. The blades have a sharp 16 degree edge, yet are durable enough to keep that sharp edge during heavy kitchen use.
The knives are available with either a black or white handle and come in a variety of sets including a 3-piece combo with Tai knife block; 6-piece combo with Tai knife block; and 4-piece steak knife sets.
