Western Style Knives

Western style knives refer to knives that are commonly used in Western cuisine and are designed with Western style cutting techniques in mind. These knives typically have a thicker and heavier blade compared to traditional Japanese knives, and their blade edges are sharpened to a different angle.

Western-style knives are generally made of stainless steel, high carbon stainless steel, or a combination of both. They are typically easier to maintain than Japanese-style knives, and their heavier weight makes them suitable for tougher cutting tasks.
