KAI Wasabi Santoku Knife
Wasabi Black â polished blade, black handle: these Japanese designed knives feature a stainless steel polished blade with aÂ hardness of 58Â±1 HRC that lend your kitchen the unmistakable Far Eastern flair. They are a good value option.Â
In contrast to the traditional Japanese wood handle the black plastic handle is not inserted but embraces the blade completely. ThusÂ theÂ bladeÂ isÂ closely connected to the handle, not allowing dirt to settle in any gaps.
The Santoku is the most Jaoanese of knives and so looks great in your collection. A cool gift to someone who likes cooking. This blade is used for all the kitchen tasks and its extra sharpness lends itself to the chopping, dicing, slicing and mincing of veg, proteins and fruits. The Japanese all rounder!
Cleaning and Care Tips:
Do not put your knife in the dishwasher as it will dull the blade.
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
