KAI SHUN Utility 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 Utility Knife isÂ the 'second' knife of any chef after a Chef's Knife.Â Its size and shape allow you to carry out those smaller, more accurate jobs where precision and detail is key. It is not quite as small as a Paring Knife but not as big as a Chef's Knife and so is extremely versatile as an inbetweener. This premium knife will bring new joy to all of those kitchen tasks.Â Â
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
