Avanta knives were designed and developed in collaboration with one of the leading culinary schools in North America. Avanta is designed with attention to detail, and is produced by Messermeister, a top brand in premium kitchen cutlery for more than two generations. The high-quality blades in this Pakkawood knife set are crafted from German X50 stainless steel for sharp, rust-resistant knives and are easy to maintain. Solid bolsters and full tang construction give the knives outstanding balance and heft. Avanta knives are made with rounded, triple-rivet pakkawood handles for comfort and durability. A lifetime warranty backs each knife against factory defects.
