Made entirely by hand of cryogenically treated steel and polyacetal thermoplastic, the powerful knives are both modest in form and superior in function. At $150 for a set of two, the price can be a bit discouraging. However, once in hand, there’s no denying the 9.47’s sleek design and impeccable craftsmanship.
