The best way to enjoy the Spanish jamón at its finest is by cutting thin slices directly from a whole ham. To take advantage of every part of your jamón it is important to have the right tools.

This knife set contains everything you need to enjoy every ounce of your ham, whether it is a traditional Serrano ham or the finest Jamón Ibérico de Bellota.

"This is actually about the video clip about cutting a bone-in ham. It was very well done, informative, and it probably sold me on not only the knife collection, but also the ham and the possibility to expand my and my family's palate for Spanish foods. Thank you both to the narrator and the excellent ham cutter!"
