Schandal Damascus Steel Knives - 2 piece set. Not sure if this is appropriate to go on the packaging so will leave it up to the designers to decide.
Description of the product
Our product is a matched pair of quality Damascus steel kitchen knives. The first knife is an 8” chef knife and the second is a 6” utility knife. Both represent quality craftsmanship with unique and modern styling. The magnetic box makes this set the perfect gift.
Description of the product target audience
This pair of quality knives could be used by professional chefs, or home cooks that appreciate a sharp edge, superb balance and modern styling and design. These knives would make the perfect gift for anyone with a passion for food or who understands the value in using quality tools in the kitchen.
The two piece knife set is to be sold in a magnetic cardboard box. The areas of the box to be designed are the outside of the box including the front flap that closes the lid and the bottom, and the inside of the lid. Outside of the box – Options we would like to explore for our box include floral (plant, tree), geometric or abstract based designs. On the lid of the box we would also like our logo (attached). On the bottom of the box will be the barcode and the words ‘Made in China’. Inside of the lid - On the inside of the lid will be the following text. I would also like our logo and brand name to appear somewhere: The Legend of Damascus Steel Damascus steel represents a tradition that originated in India around 300BC. Mystery surrounds the production of Damascus steel since knowledge of the original process was all but lost. Modern manufacturing uses two or more steel alloys which are layered and forged to produce the artistic wavy pattern that is a characteristic feature of a Damascus steel blade. The forging process not only creates a distinctive design, it imparts the blade with strength, ductility and corrosion resistance. The beautiful patterns, unique design and quality craftsmanship are represented in every Schandal Damascus steel knife. It is your guarantee of a knife that will hold its edge, look magnificent and stand the test of time.
373x115x33mm - These are the overall dimensions of the box.
