As many of our chefs work in environments where the knife is used very heavily and often abused!!, we wanted to create a blade capable of withstanding these conditions as well as capable of enduring razor-edge sharpness that is easy to maintain. JKC AUS 10 Series is the answer.
Our goal was achieved by utilising a stain resistant High Carbon Steel (AUS 10), sandwiched between 2 layers of soft stainless steel. The hard central core facilitates surgical sharpness, whilst the soft outer layers make the knife consummately easy to resharpen and grind over many years of heavy use. For economy, the laminated steel is pre forged into sheets that are laser cut to the final shape prior to expert tempering, grinding, hand sharpening and finishing. The result is a knife of outstanding quality that is comparable to many at a much higher cost.
The handles are made of natural finished brown Pakkawood attached with 3 rivets to a full tang for comfort and perfect balance.
This is the Japanese interpretation of a Western Chef’s knife. It is flat from the handle end for about 1/3rd of the edge and then curves to the tip. It is ideal for the Western style of roll cutting.
Function – Multipurpose chef knife. For Slicing, Dicing, Mincing, Filleting and Chopping of meat, fish and vegetables.
Normal length – 180mm to 300mm.
Tip: With the edge flat for about 1/3rd of the blade – 210 mm or longer the knife-edge profile is the same as a 180mm Santoku from the handle to tip and the same as a 180mm Gyuto from the tip to handle – so essentially a 180mm Gyuto & 180mm Santoku in one knife. The 210mm is the most favoured size for most chefs.
