Renaissance Wax is a revolutionary formula that is a semi-synthetic micro-crystalline fossil-origin wax entirely free of, damaging acids. It remains chemically neutral and is therefore completely safe, even on vulnerable surfaces.
Guard your precious pieces against the damaging effects of humidity, heat, dust, environmental destruction, aging, and ordinary wear. Renaissance Wax provides a barrier against fingerprints and the devastation of water, wine, alcohol and other spills. With its high moisture resistance, it forms a durable, lustrous protective coating. Prevents tarnish, corrosion and "bloom". Remains completely waterproof.
Hinoki (Japanese Cypress) cutting boards are used throughout Japan. The wood and its oil are known for their ability to kill bacteria, viruses and fungus. It is also prized for its longevity under the wettest conditions. These properties add to its desirability for use in a kitchen.
The unusually straight grain structure of the wood makes for the perfect surface for the sharpest knives. The medium-soft nature of hinoki wood provides a self-healing cutting surface that helps hide scratches and keeps knife sharp as long as possible. A swivel walnut foot assists the board to dry evenly.
This board is a perfect size for preparing full meals to snacks in a more compact kitchen!
Ceramic rods provide the best touch up possible between sharpening. By removing very little material, the blade is honed to a razor edge. Fine ceramic rods will hone a knife to the most optimal edge. However, if a considerable time has passed since honing or sharpening, a coarse rod is often required. Generally, a ceramic rod should be approximately the length of the longest knife that you will be honing. This set comes with a 12 inch fine ceramic rod.
Over time, ceramic rods build up metal particles that clog the abrasive surface. The Superaser cleans the surface of all ceramic rods so that they will continue to hone just like they did when they were new.
MAC's forged kitchen shears really get the job done. They will make quick work out of hard shellfish shells, poultry bones, fish bones, and miscellaneous packaging. One blade is micro-serrated for holding onto slippery surfaces while the other has a razor-polished edge that slices cleanly through tough shells and bones. The drop-forged stainless steel blades are some of the strongest we could find. They are held together by an adjustable nut with a quick-release joint so that you can maintain tight blade-to-blade contact and yet be easily taken apart for cleaning (very important in a kitchen shear!). Strong enough to cut through a penny, these shears were designed for heavy-duty kitchen tasks. Slightly right-handed handle but we know some lefties who use them too. These sharp and smooth functioning shears feature a blue textured/rubber grip.

Fish Bone Tweezers help effortlessly remove bones from fish.
Unlike typical magnetic holders that rely on steel rails, this rack won't ding or nick your high quality blade steel. Your knives will stay sharp longer because wood is edge-friendly. Also, unlike traditional countertop knife blocks, bacteria cannot get trapped in deep slots.
Your knives and tools will be safely secured. With the holding power of rare earth magnets, this strip is capable of holding heavier items such as large hand tools. Holding-power is dependent on shape, friction and size of item. For large items, such as heavier hand planes with a relatively small contact area, we recommend two horizontal racks spaced several inches apart.
To store knives horizontally, two racks can be set vertically spaced several inches apart. The construction methods used to make these strips are such that the entire block seems to be a single piece of wood. Only premium solid hardwoods are used. These magnetic knife holders are backed by a lifetime guaranty.
Unlike typical metal rail magnet bars, these are attractive, designed to accentuate and blend with their environment. Natural sycamore wood figure and tone will vary on each knife strip.
