Description: Fruit knives are utility knives that are perfect for slicing produce, meats, and fish. It is a great general purpose kitchen utility knife.
Akifusa's Powdered Metallurgical chef's knives have quickly become a favorite at Epicurean Edge. The san mai powdered metallurgical (PM) steel blade is similar to a Western Chef knife with the cutting qualities of the best Japanese-made knives. PM steel is created using a crucible technique and results in smaller grain structure and significantly longer edge holding. The center layer is SRS-15 PM stainless steel originally designed for metal cutting tools. It was hardened to Hrc 64 and is clad on the sides with soft SUS-405 stainless steel. This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and chip resist edge that is relatively easy to re-sharpen.
The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance and has an extremely thin, keen edge for high performance.
The 'D' shape handle fits comfortably and securely in the hand and is best used by a right-handed user. It is formed from macassar ebony with a pakkawood ferrule. This wood holds up extremely well in the harsh environment of the kitchen. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
