The “Yari” knife series impresses with its quality, sharpness and appearance. It combines traditional Far East design with superb functional characteristics. WMF has therefore developed the new “Yari” knife series for all keen cooks, with blades made from 67 layers of high-quality Japanese special blade steel. The extraordinary sharpness of the knives is due to the particularly sharp 30° cutting angle and is especially long-lasting due to the extreme hardness of the blade core – an excellent quality which has been extremely well-received by cookery enthusiasts. Thousands of years ago, the Damascene blades used by oriental warriors were known for putting the fear of God into their enemies. The reason for this was their especially accentuated and long-lasting sharpness. Today, kitchen professionals use this characteristic to their advantage.
