The Kai Wasabi Black series provides the best knives of both worlds, with blade shapes in both traditional Japanese and Western styles. The Kai Wasabi Black 6 Utility Knife is one of the Western-style blades, and offers a keen double-bevel blade. The blade offers a narrow and straight design, perfect for various precision tasks around the kitchen. With a length that falls between a paring knife and a chef s knife, this fine blade is perfect for trimming small and medium vegetables such as broccoli, green beans and kale. This lovely piece of cutlery is handy for putting sandwiches together, excelling with meats, cheeses, as well as a variety of fruits and vegetables.
Created from Daido 1K6 high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Kai Wasabi Black 6 Utility Knife offers superb sharpness and edge retention. Hand sharpened to a 16 angle each side, the blade is then given a grazed finish, for an eye-pleasing brushed-steel look. The black handle is crafted from durable polypropylene plastic and formed into a traditional, easy-to-grip Japanese style. For best results, hand wash Kai Wasabi Black cutlery.
