KAI SHUN Tomato Knife 15cm
Kai Shun have cult status the world over for the quality, performance, craftmanship and the sheer beauty of their knives.Â
The 15cm Tomato Knife has the very same shape of the Utility Knife, only it has a serrated edgeÂ that makes it ideal for slicing foods with tougher skins and soft interiorsâsuch as avocados. It works well on sausages, especially those with tougher casing, and with hard cheeses. TheÂ TomatoÂ Knife is wonderful for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed.
The 34 layers of folded Damascus Steel (68 in total) sit on a core layer of VG Max Steel which is one of the toughest and resistant steels avaiable. The tang of the knife extends all the way down through the pakkawood handle giving it extra balance and strength. This knife will bring renewed ease and pleasure to your cooking.Â Â
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.Â
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.Â
