The thin, razor-sharp blades of the MAC Superior Series Knife Block Set are made of extra-hard high-carbon Molybdenum Vanadium alloy, making them harder, sharper and more durable than other Japanese Knives. Mac Superior Series knives go through an additional forging process, called Sub-Zero Tempering, producing blades with excellent edge retention. The ergonomic Pakkawood Handles are specially shaped for extra clearance while cutting, making them much easier to grip and handle. Most knives in the Superior Series also feature a convenient hanging eyelets in the blades, as well as the trademark rounded tips for safety. The MAC knives, which are manufactured in Japan, were first created over 40 years ago and are known for their long-lasting sharpness.
