The Kyoto Collection is our first ‘All Steel’ Warikomi (sandwich steel) series. With a central core of AUS 8 High Carbon steel, these 3 layer blades are razor sharp and very easy to maintain. The seamless all steel handle/blade construction is ergonomically designed for maximum comfort during prolonged use. These ultra-light knives, with their High Carbon core will outperform similar looking ‘all steel’ knives, which are generally made of just a single layer of low carbon steel, whilst the softer outer layers will make these knives far easier to sharpen.
Made by a small family-run factory in Seki, Japan, these knives, with their 3 layer construction represent the best value ‘all steel’ knife on the market and a perfect complement to any contemporary kitchen.
The shape is basically a small Sujihiki or slicing knife. As the name suggests it is a multi-function knife used for the preparation of vegetables and precise cutting of meat and fish. The slim profile presents a smaller area to fatty, oily, and starchy foods where a wider blade would create a stronger vacuum and ‘stick’ more to the food.
Function – Multipurpose for preparing all food groups. A favourite knife of many home cooks who are uncomfortable with large blades.
Normal length – 150mm
Tip: This knife is also used for carving petite roasts, filleting and skinning fish as well as careful dissection of poultry without hitting bones. An extremely useful size for any kitchen.
