Description

EXCLUSIVE Certified as a Master Bladesmith by the American Bladesmith Society, Bob Kramer is one of the only Master Bladesmiths in the world specializing in kitchen cutlery. Cook’s Illustrated once wrote: “The Kramer knife outperformed every knife we’ve ever rated.” Put simply, Kramer is King of the Kitchen Knife. Saveur dubbed Bob “The Master of the Blade.”  

For this exclusive collection, Sur La Table worked with the master himself—along with renowned German knife maker Zwilling J.A. Henckels—to create an exquisite line of artisan knives designed by Bob and crafted to his exacting specifications.

This elegant, efficient 7-piece set includes: 3½" paring knife, 5" utility knife, 8" chef’s knife, 10" bread knife, 9" slicer, Kramer’s double-cut sharpening steel and dark-walnut storage block. Hand wash. Limited lifetime warranty. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan, exclusively for Sur La Table®.

Features Hide

AN OBSESSIVE DEDICATION TO EXCELLENCE
Bob Kramer has spent nearly two decades reducing the craft of knife making to its essence, creating his original artisan knives on his own from start to finish. In his studio, he forges the best raw materials with a relentless pursuit of perfection into some of the most beautiful and sought-after cutlery in the culinary world. Professional chefs often wait years to get their hands on one of Bob’s legendary handcrafted creations.  

RAZOR-SHARP DAMASCUS BLADE
The blade begins with a core of SG2, a super-premium steel with a fine grain structure that takes and maintains an incredibly sharp edge. The core is clad on each side with 50 alternating layers of nickel and Damascus stainless steel, resulting in an exceptionally strong, 101-layer blade. Features beautiful, deep-etched chevron pattern designed by Bob.  

DURABLE LINEN-MICARTA HANDLE
Prized as one of the most durable handle materials available, linen micarta withstands extreme temperatures and resists wear, even after prolonged use. Handle is triple riveted for strength and control, with full tang tapered to Bob’s precise specifications. Each knife features a signature center pin handcrafted by Bob himself.  

CUTTING-EDGE ENGINEERING
Blade is cryogenically hardened, rapidly cooled, and then tempered twice to maximize durability and achieve a 63 Rockwell hardness.  

TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP  
Skilled Japanese artisans hand finish each knife using a traditional honbazuke honing technique. Blades are sharpened twice on whetstones with custom grits, followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel. The angle of each blade is honed to 15° on each side for scalpel-like sharpness.

DESIGNED FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT
Whether you’re working in a professional kitchen night after night or prepping for meals at home, you want a knife that lets you chop, dice and slice with ease. Bob draws on his experience working in commercial kitchens to create ergonomic knives with exceptional balance for hours of comfortable use.

Rivets stick out
I purchased and returned this set. The blades are great, and I was looking forward to owning them, but the top and bottom rivets on three of the knives stuck out too much. They are too expensive to have worse form and fit than cheapo knives. The store manager asked me not to use them while waiting for replacements to be ordered (which was a turnoff, given the return policy and fact that it was an expensive impulse buy). At the end of the day, based on other Kramer/Zwilling reviews, the replacements were likely to have the same problem. So, back to the store they went. Very disappointed.

A friend owns a damascus chef knife and when my boyfriend and I went to her house for a dinner, my boyfriend raved how much he loved the chef knife when he used it. So i bought the whole set for him as a gift. :)

What is a ""double cut"" sharpening steel? And what advantages does it have
A shopper on Jun 2, 2013
Best Answer: A double cut honing sharpening steel has a rough side for honing like your average steel, but it also has a polishing side as well

Can the knife block be bought seperately?

I was wondering if the knife block for the Henckels Bob Kramer 7-piece set could be bought separately. I bought a couple of the Henckel Kramer knives, but they are so wide that they won't fit in a regular knife block. I'd like to have a block that I can place them in without having to buy the whole set
A shopper on Jan 27, 2013
Best Answer: At this time, this knife block is not sold separately. Currently, Zwilling only offers the easel and pyramid blocks that can be purchased individually

Best Answer: Depends how much time you want to invest in your knives... There is significant oiling and general care issues associated with the carbon steel knives to keep them looking great. I personally love my Bob Cramer Carbon Euroline knives and am willing to invest in the upkeep of them. Stainless steel is easier to care for but if you want to be a culinary "baller" get the carbons and don't look back. FYI, I purchased an additional 8 inch stainless steel chefs knife for those days I don't want to go through the hassle of cleaning and re-oiling my carbons. I suggest you do the same if you get the carbons.
