Made by the Aoki Hamono in Sakai, here is a range of knives that are as beautiful as they are functional. Hand made from a patented 33 Layer steel with a High Carbon VG10 Super Steel core these are amongst the sharpest knives to come from Japan. The hammered finish on the top half of the blade means that sticky foods do not adhere heavily and make slicing dicing and chopping of both vegetable and flesh a pleasurable task. With an ergonomic Mahogany handle and smooth bolster, they are amazingly comfortable during prolonged use.
The sharpening, with the ultra-thin core, is very easy and remains so over the many years this knife is designed to be used in a busy kitchen.Peeling & Paring: This shape is primarily for peeling, paring, or cutting in the hand rather than on aboard. Used for tasks where a larger knife would be tricky or unsafe. Function – Primarily for peeling and paring vegetables in the hand. Normal lengths – 90mm to 135mm. Tip: This knife is a MUST for every kitchen and the ideal partner to a larger chef’s knife.
