Apogee Culinary Designs Dragon Series of knives are handcrafted by Yaxell, one of the leading manufacturers since 1932, in Seki, Japan. The blades are constructed from a single piece of high-grade nitrogen-enriched American steel that has been hardened a Rockwell hardness of 63. The handles are crafted from FDA approved, heat-resistant, non-shrink Micarta, with stainless steel rivets and bolster. These durable and incredibly sharp knives are the perfect fusion of Japanese craftsmanship and American high-quality steel and technology.
The Dragon Fusion Chef's Knife has an extra wide blade that allows you to easily scoop and remove chopped foods. It features a hefty spine that is perfect for chopping large meats and vegetables and for going through chicken joints. It is a fusion of a rocking chef's knife and a nakiri style knife.
