KAI SHUN Scalloped Chef's Knife 20cm
Kai Shun have cult status the world over for the quality, performance, craftsmanship and the sheer beauty of their knives.
The 20cm Chef's Knife is your classic go-to tool for any cook. It is the all rounder, the chopper, the slicer, the mincer, the dicer. This premium knife will bring new joy to all of those kitchen tasks using the shape to achieve that rocking motion to mince through herbs and vegetables.
This one is extra-special because of the scalloped or hollow-ground indentations on either side of the blade. They create small air pockets that reduce friction when cutting, making it easier to glide through the cut. If you've had problems with sticking, try a hollow-ground blade.
The 34 layers of folded Damascus Steel (68 in total) rest on a core layer of VG Max Steel which is one of the toughest and most resistant steels available. The tang of the knife extends all the way down through the ebony pakkawood handle giving it extra balance and strength. This knife will bring renewed ease and pleasure to your cooking.
Cleaning and Care Tips:
Do not put your knife in the dishwasher.
Store either in a knife block, in a drawer or ideally on a magnetic knife rack.
Wash your blade with hot water before first use and dry thoroughly.
After each use, it is good practice to wash your blade under hot water, to dry with a dishcloth immediately and then to store it away.
Use a wooden or synthetic board for chopping. Stone or glass will dull your blade.
After slicing through acidic foodstuffs such as lemons, limes or tomatoes, wash and dry your knife straight away, because if left, the acids will begin to damage the steel, leaving spots.
