Product Questions

Which knives should I prioritize when starting a set?
The cornerstone of any kitchen knife collection is undoubtedly the chef's knife, and beyond that, the choice of additional knives depends on your specific cooking preferences and needs.
What is the difference between a chef knife and a santoku knife?
The Chef's knife and Santoku knife, rooted in distinct culinary traditions, showcase nuanced differences in design and functionality. Originating from Western kitchens, the chef's knife boasts a broad, curved blade, ideal for a rocking motion during cutting tasks such as mincing and chopping. With a longer, pointed tip and versatility in mind, it spans 8 to 10 inches in length. In contrast, the Santoku knife, a stalwart of Japanese cuisine, features a shorter, wider blade with a flatter edge, promoting a precise downward chopping motion. Typically measuring 5 to 7 inches, it excels in slicing and dicing vegetables, fish, and boneless meats. The Santoku knife's rounded or squared-off tip and thinner spine enhance safety and precision, catering to a vertical chopping style. The choice between these knives ultimately rests on personal preference, with each offering a unique approach to culinary tasks.
Why does Elitequo prioritize in Damascus?
At Elitequo, we prioritize Damascus Steel for its exceptional combination of strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Damascus steel, known for its distinctive wavy pattern, is achieved through a meticulous layering process. This not only results in a visually stunning blade but also contributes to superior hardness, often reaching 60 ± 2 HRC. The unique properties of Damascus steel enhance the overall performance of our knives, ensuring they are not only functional but also enduring works of art. We believe in providing our customers with kitchen tools that embody both precision and elegance, and Damascus steel aligns perfectly with this commitment, delivering knives that stand out in both form and function.
Why does Elitequo use 15° on all knives?
At Elitequo, the choice of a 15-degree angle for our knife blades is rooted in our dedication to precision and cutting performance. This specific angle strikes a balance between sharpness and durability. The acute edge enhances the knife's ability to make precise cuts with minimal effort, making it exceptionally sharp. Our skilled artisans meticulously craft each blade in-house, ensuring that the 15-degree angle is maintained consistently. This dedication to a specific angle not only showcases the expertise of our craftsmen but also guarantees that every knife from Elitequo delivers a level of sharpness that defines the excellence of our cutlery.
