Ginsu Chikara 8-piece Japanese Kitchen Knife Set Review

Main Features

Comfortable handling through ergonomic design

As we found out in the Ginsu Chikara 8-piece Japanese kitchen knife set review the handles of the knives are made of water and heat resistant resin. The handle of each Japanese kitchen knife is ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in your hand. The ergonomic design reduces any kind of strain on the hand and forearm.

Made of forged steel

Forging makes steel stronger. Forged knives are easier to sharpen as they are not very flexible. The tang, blade and bolster of the knives are made of a single piece of metal. As we found in our Ginsu Chikara 8-piece Japanese kitchen knife set review, forged knives are of superior quality and heavier than stamped knives.

Bamboo storage block for easy storage

This kitchen knife set with block helps to keep the knives in the proper place, as it is not a good idea to keep sharp knives loosely in a kitchen drawer. The block is designed to prevent damage and premature dullness of the blades.

Wide range of versatile knives.

The 8-Inch Chef’s Knife in the set is the most versatile knife you can ever find. It can be used to do a variety of tasks in the kitchen including peeling, trimming, slicing, dicing, and chopping. The 7-Inch Santoku Knife also needs a special mention. The Kullens grind on the blade prevents sticking of food on the blade while slicing.

Minor shortcomings

During our Ginsu Chikara 8-piece Japanese kitchen knife set review, we found that the blades of the knives lost sharpness faster than expected. However, there is nothing to worry as the knife set also has an 8-inch Honing rod that can bring back the sharpness back with ease.
