Clipper Corporation is now shipping its Viking professional cutlery assortment.
The cutlery assortment features eight knives— a paring, utility, serrated utility, steak, carving, Santoku, chef’s, and bread. The line also features a sharpening steel, kitchen shears and a beechwood storage block in addition to cutlery sets.
The fully forged high alloy steel knives are constructed with an integrated tang and riveted POM handle. As the knives are also designed for professionals, the ergonomically designed handles provide comfort and ease of use and balance between the blade and handle, the company said.
In addition, the Viking cutlery is said to be hygienic with no gaps between the blade and handle. The bolster and integrated tang deliver stability and balance while protecting the user’s hand from the heel of the blades, according to the company.
Geared towards specialty stores and the gourmet retail channel, as well as online gourmet housewares retailers, the Viking cutlery sets have a suggested retail price range of $320 to $760. Open stock pieces range in price from $80 to $180.
