Entirely manufactured in Japan, MAC knives are precision tools, shaped, assembled, polished, and sharpened by professional Japanese craftsmen. Each knife is equipped with a razor-sharp edge, comfortable handles, and great balance. Popular with professional cooks and cooking enthusiasts throughout the world, and over 25 million knives sold since 1964.
MAC stain-resistant knives are entirely produced by professional craftsmen in Seki City, renowned for superior sword manufacturing since the Middle Ages. MAC blades are made from rust-resistant Chrome Molybdenum Vanadium High-Carbon cutlery steel, with Tungsten added to selected models for extra durability and sharpness. Blades are hand-ground, and hand-sharpened on water-cooled stones to optimise the quality of the finished blade. The thin razor-sharp blades are sharper and stay sharp longer than other leading knife brands. The steel has optimal hardness between 57º and 61º Rockwell C and is still easy to re-sharpen.
