Mac Knife Edge
MAC kitchen knives are sharpened in the characteristic “MAC Edge”, invented and patented by the company founder Mr. Tatsuo Kobayashi in 1965. It is a hybrid of Japanese and European style sharpening.
The MAC edge allows for finer and thinner cutting than traditional European V-shaped edges, it is also much more versatile than the single-sided KATABA Japanese kitchen knives.
It is thanks to this solution that MAC knives have gained such success and recognition of chefs around the world.
The distinctive MAC edge is a hybrid between traditional Japanese single edge sharpening (KATABA) and western V-shaped sharpening (RYOBA) style. The slight difference is that the edges are cut off-center at an angle of about 45.5 degrees. Such sharpened knives allow you to make straight cuts and cut thin slices more accurately without damaging them.
