Calphalon Precision Series Cutlery Designed for Optimal Edge Retention
ATLANTA (Oct. 15, 2012) – Calphalon®, the leader in premium cookware and kitchenware, announces the launch of Calphalon Precision Series, fully forged cutlery that features precision-honed blades for long-lasting edges.
Engineered to exacting standards, Calphalon Precision Series cutlery stays sharp more than 20 percent longer than Calphalon Contemporary cutlery. Blades are precisely tapered to a finer edge for optimal edge retention and deliver exceptional performance when chopping, slicing, mincing and more.
"A sharp knife is a true kitchen essential," said Justin Bluth, Senior Brand Manager for Calphalon. "It cleanly and easily slices through foods, making beautiful cuts and helping you finish quickly and efficiently. Precision Series knives are designed to stay sharp longer and give great results, whether you're taking thin slices of a tomato, chopping an onion or even carving a roast."
Precision Series knives are fully forged from high-carbon, no-stain German steel that is prized for its strength and ability to resist rust, stains and other discolorations. Full tang construction – with blade and bolster that extend the full length of the handle – deliver excellent balance and strength. In addition, Precision Series knives have beautifully contoured, bar-riveted handles designed to fit comfortably in the hand. Each knife is labeled on the end, making it easy to select the knife you're looking for when they're stored in the block.
Calphalon Precision Series cutlery is available in a 16-piece set for a suggested retail price of $249.99 and individually as open stock ranging from $34.99 to $44.99. Calphalon Precision Series cutlery is available online at calphalon.com and macys.com, and in-store at Bed Bath & Beyond.
