Description: Pro-S is a perfect knife for either the home or professional chef. It provides a superior, keen edge that just won't quit.
Utility knives are perfect for slicing fruits, vegetables and meat, as well as performing other detail tasks. The thin blade is longer than a paring knife and has a thinner profile than a chef's knife.
Pro-S is made by Seki-Kanetsugu Hamono, founded by the legendary Seki swordsmith (Kanetsugu) from the Teiwa period (1345-1349). The ancient techniques of forging samurai swords have been passed down from generation to generation for over 660 years.
The Pro-S blade is a high carbon, high molybdenum, high vanadium stainless steel. It is heat treated to Hrc 57 and sub-zero quenched for longer edge holding and resistance to chipping and brittleness. The blade is convex ground (hamaguri-ba). This helps food release from the side of the knife while slicing. The edge is sharpened to 15 degrees on each side.
The sanitary hollow 18-8 grade stainless steel handle is nicely rounded. It is slightly larger than many Japanese knives and is inspired by the traditional Japanese katana wrap. This pattern provides a sure, comfortable, non-slip grip. Following in the best tradition of knife making, a forge welded steel ferrule ensures that food particles cannot become lodged between the tang and the handle. The handle was developed by Mitsuyasu Kawamura (president of Kanetsugu Hamono). His research and study resulted in these light, nimble and perfectly balanced knives.
