Mac Japanese Knives & Cutlery

MAC Knives are manufactured in Japan using a custom high carbon, high molybdenum content, stainless steel alloy. The blend results in a most extraordinary alloy with a 60 degree Rockwell hardness that has good edge retention and is easy to resharpen. Mac knives feature razor sharp edges that are set at 15 degree angles, as opposed to the 20 degree edges preferred by the Germans. This flatter edge of a Mac Knife offers less resistance making the knife quicker and sharper. The late Charlie Trotter endorsed Mac's Professional Knife Series.

Mac Chef Series Knives Mac Chef Knives have thin blades (2.0-2.5 mm) made with molybdenum, and feature a handle that is straight with the spine of the blade. Ideal for any food preparation task, due to their light-weight nature.

Mac Original Series Knives Mac Original Knives feature rounded tips for safety, hanging holes near the tip of the blade, and thin, flexible blades (1.5-2.0 mm), making these knives easy to use without your arm or hand getting tired.
