Why buy this range

Light, thin and well balanced with a great quality blade finish; at an excellent price they represent great value for money.

Wrapped in the day's local newspaper and safely encased in a stylish black storage box with a red inlay and a small note from the blacksmiths explaining that this range is how they prize art and functionality; efficient cutting tools over ones that are simply beautiful. These are both.
