Description

What kind of knife is this?

The classic vegetable knife. Highly functional for processing large amounts of vegetables and preforming finer cutting tasks such as julienne of brunoise. The absence of a pronounced belly in the profile orientates it more towards chopping style cutting motions rather than rolling cuts. 

Care Instructions

This is a carbon steel knife with a soft stainless steel cladding. Most Japanese knives have a 3-layer construction called “San Mai”, hard and high quality steel sandwiched between two layers of soft steel. In this case the soft steel (cladding) is a stainless steel and only the core is made out of carbon (non-stainless) steel. You’ll have all the advantages of a carbon edge e.g., sharpening ease and edge retention, but without having to worry about oxidation on the rest of the blade.
Still it is important to store your knife dry and clean, never let it air-dry after washing, no dishwasher and avoid extremely hard products like frozen foods or bones ect.
