Description: 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. It is one of the essential knives to have in the kitchen.
Kanehiro Uchi Hamono was founded in 1953 by Kintaro Kato. Over the years, the company has built up tremendous experience and knowledge of forging skill and knifemaking. The president, Hiroshi Kato, is the second generation of Kanehiro Uchi Hamono and received certification as a traditional Japanese craftsman in 2008.
Kintaro chef's knives feature a blade of exquisite beauty. Layers of alternating SUS304 and SUS310 stainless steel (called damascus in the west - and suminagashi in Japan) surround a premium VG10 cobalt stainless steel core. Each knife is a unique design -- a true work of art. VG10 takes and holds a razor edge -- ensuring a silky and effortless cut. It is hardened to Hrc 60-61 for superior edge retention. This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and chip resist edge that is relatively easy to sharpen. A convex grind (hamiguri-ba) assists food to release from the side of the knife. The ambidextrous blade features a 50/50 grind.
The traditional Japanese "Wa" style handle is octagonal. It is equally well suited for left handed and right handed users. Traditional Japanese handles allow the knife to be lighter and more nimble. Natural macassar ebony is combined with black pakkawood for a handle that will last a lifetime. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
