Experience the tools of a master chef with the THRIVE 5 Minimalist Knife Collection. Featuring five exceptional knives, this collection uses high carbon stainless Japanese VG10 steel with 1% carbon for superior edge retention and sharpness. Each of the THRIVE 5 blades is cryogenically treated with subzero liquid nitrogen. This achieves a Rockwell Hardness of 59-60 and features 67 layers of stunning ocean tide Damascus patterning. These knives also offer a luxurious feel thanks to the birch pakkawood handle and the unique dual-parabolic bolster. Holding these knives feels like shaking hands with an old friend. The knives are impressively sharp out of the box and deliver impressive performance in the kitchen. The full collection includes an 8-inch chef’s knife, 7-inch Bunka knife, 4.3-inch paring knife, 6-inch vegetable cleaver, and a 9-inch bread knife. The minimalist form of the THRIVE 5 extends to the knife block with a magnet-embedded stand for easy access.
