Leiths Carbon Steel Knife Set

Leiths Carbon Steel Knife Set


All Leiths knives have a one year guarantee against faults in materials or manufacture. The knives will be delivered safely and directly to your door in a Leiths chef knife roll.

Price includes postage and packaging to inland UK.*

These knives are made from high carbon, non-staining Molybdenum Vanadium knife steel [German Mo.V HRC 56 stainless steel]. This steel has the ability to take and retain a razor sharpness.

The knives are of forged construction. The blade, bolster and tang (to which the handle grips are riveted) are hot-forged in one piece. This gives them the great strength they need to withstand long and hard use in the busiest commercial kitchen environment.

The POM handle is designed to provide a safe comfortable grip; POM is a high performance engineering polymer, with high strength, resistance to impact and used instead of metal to enhance grip and save weight.

To maintain sharpness a 12” diamond steel is included with the set.

The set

  • Chef Knife (8″)
  • Santoku Knife (7.5″)
  • Boning Knife (6″)
  • Fillet Knife (7.25″)
  • Utility Knife (4.5″)
  • Knife Roll
  • Knife Steel (Carbon)


The Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association in Sheffield tested our blades under British Standards EN ISO 8442-5 for sharpness and edge retention.

Our knife blades passed in both respects and are classified as ‘Excellent’, the highest of 5 categories, significantly exceeding the ‘Excellent’ rating requirement, for ‘Cutting Performance’ by 26% and for ‘Edge Retention’ by 23%.
