Superior Design & Craftsmanship | Entirely manufactured in Japan, MAC knives are a combination of the best Western design and Japanese knife-making craftsmanship. Every knife is shaped, assembled, polished and sharpened by professional Japanese craftsmen in a series of up to 64 steps to guarantee that every knife is a flawless precision tool. MAC produces a large variety of quality knives and provides a knife for any cooking purpose. Every knife is razor sharp with comfortable handling and great balance.
Stays Sharper Longer | All western models of MAC knives have blades made of rust resistant high-carbon Chrome Molybdenum Vanadium alloy, with Tungsten added for selected models to increase hardness even further. Extreme care is taken to keep down the temperature of the metal during the grinding and sharpening process, thereby optimizing the hardness of the finished blade. Every stain resistant blade is carefully hand-sharpened by professional knife smiths from the renowned Seki region in Japan. Quality materials combined with the best of craftsmanship produce a blade that can retain its sharpness several times longer than other leading knife brands.
Limited Edition Knife Sets | Special Release Limited Edition Knife Sets will be released in 2008. Tetsuya Wakuda has selected and created his own individual knife sets. Ask your local MAC Distributor for release details.
The MAC Edge | The razor sharp blades of stain resistant MAC knives are harder than most stainless steel knives on the market, but not to the point where they are impossible to sharpen. By making the knives with a hardness between 58 and 60 degrees Rockwell C, the knives can be sharpened with the characteristic "MAC edge". The MAC edge allows straighter and thinner slicing than the traditional European V-shaped edge, and is far more versatile than the single beveled Japanese KATABA edge.
