For the true aficionado of ham from Spain, this professional grade carving set includes all the tools that you need to prepare, slice and serve your delicious ham from Spain.
Handcrafted by the renowned J.H. Henckels Company, the set includes four forged knives, each with a different purpose. The medium sized knife is used to skin and de-fat the ham in preparation for slicing. The smallest knife is used to carefully cut around the different bones that one encounters while slicing a ham or paleta. Lastly the set contains two long, thin slicing knives so that you can always be assured of a sharp knife when you are ready to serve a crowd of jamon lovers.
The knives are accompanied by a steel sharpening stick with a sturdy black handle as well as a pair of small tongs which are used to delicately place the small slices of jamon onto an awaiting plate.
One of the most interesting components of this set is a steel, chain mail glove which will protect your hand while it grips and steadies the ham that you are slicing. This is a really important item since to achieve paper-thin slices, you have to work with a very sharp set of knives.
The knives, the sharpener, the serving tongs and the chain mail glove each fit into individual pockets in the black vinyl carrying case. A top protective flap keeps everything in place and the satchel, emblazoned with the 5J logo, is closed with two substantial velcro straps.
For the ham lover with everything, this would make the perfect gift. The set comes in a very attractive black box with a stunning picture of sliced jamon on the inner sleeve.
