De Buyer created the FIBRE KARBON 1 (FK1) collection for the most demanding of professional chefs. The high tech handle, compression-molded in France with multiple layers of aerospace grade carbon fiber, is light and extremely strong, making it perfectly balanced and pleasant to hold. The razor sharp blades are very strong in the European tradition, and very sharp in the Japanese tradition – the perfect blend of both cutlery and culinary worlds.
The handles are not just for decoration, but are a structural part of the very strong and perfectly balanced mono-bloc construction with full lenght tang, solid bolster and counter weighted tail.
The JAPANESE KNIFE is the De Buyer flagship knife designed to represent the fusion between a typical French Chef knife and a Japanese Sashimi Knife. This knife is perfectly balanced, and razor sharp!
