F5 Zhen

Introducing the F5 Chef Knife Series, a true embodiment of precision and craftsmanship. At the heart of this collection is the impressive ZDP-189 steel, a top-notch Japanese Stainless Steel known for its exceptional qualities. Made using advanced techniques, this steel boasts high hardness, excellent resistance to rust, and incredible durability. It’s a steel that knife enthusiasts are genuinely excited about due to its unique properties. With a carbon content of 3% and a chromium content of 20%, it can achieve an exceptional hardness of 65-67 HRC after heat treatment. Many skilled knife makers prefer this steel for crafting high-quality custom knives.

A fresh approach has been taken to the classic octagonal handle design in this series. Instead of the usual black horns, a combination of padauk burl wood and black G10 has been used to enhance the handle’s look and durability. After careful hand polishing, the handle not only feels comfortable but also has a charming texture. The F5 series blends innovation and tradition seamlessly, resulting in a knife collection that’s not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing.
