Model 805-A Master Chef’s 9 Piece B.B.Q. Knife Set

Have you joined the great American backyard cook off? Do you have a love affair with outdoor BBQ? If you have, then you’ll need the right cutting tools for slicing and dicing all your favorite cuts of meat. Most importantly in a safe and sanitary manner. Whether you’re a backyard chef, with a new outdoor kitchen, or a professional caterer/cook competing in summer food festivals, here is all your will ever need, in a complete knife package, custom built, just for you.

Let me introduce you to my latest pride and joy. Hopefully we have met all your “must have” requirements.

We started with a high quality, weather-resistant, 440-C., stainless steel, that requires minimal care. Each blade has been professionally heat treated, and tempered. Keeping its cutting edge razor sharp through many hours of hard use. We built each knife using a full tang handle design. The strongest construction method available.

For the handles, a high density food grade approved, polyester pearl was chosen. Available in many color choices, including solid white, black, and blue. I chose the most colorful and exotic just for the wow factor. This polyester plastic material cleans up completely, and will not harbor harmful bacteria.

You will find a set of colored liners, installed under each handle, to frame and add a little color and contrast. I carry six colors for you to choose from, with red showing up the best.

For extra strength and holding power, solid brass pins and super strong 2-ton epoxy is used to hold every thing together.

A highly polished set of brass bolsters have been added, just in front of each handle. Each has been leightly engraved by me, with a scroll pattern, to add a little extra touch of class. If brass isn’t your favorite choice, for a minimum cost you may upgrade to either stainless steeel or nickel silver, with matching pins.

To safely transport and store your barbecue knife set, we designed a two part carry system. First we built two strong, slotted leather inserts. Custom built, from my knife sheath stock of imported water buffalo hides, they are thick, tough, and strong. Each insert is slotted to hold each knife securely, yet still allow for easy removal. Once filled, each insert fits comfortably inside a custom made, black nylon storage case. Fully padded, with a full zipper, each case has a strong set of carrying handles, to complete the package.
