With knives of both worlds, the Kai Wasabi Black series of knives is comprised of a selection of blades from both traditional Japanese and Western styles. A representative of the Asian side of the family, the Kai Wasabi Black 6” Deba Knife offers an impressive, razor-sharp single-bevel edge. This medium-sized deba is a heavier knife that excels with breaking down fish and producing a clean fillet. Utilize this fine, wide blade to behead fish, bone poultry, and cut meat. While this blade makes short work through small bones and skin, it is not intended for larger, heavier bones. Nimble and precise with a nicely curved belly, this blade excels with small mincing, dicing and chopping tasks, as well as other jobs where a chef’s knife might otherwise be the blade of choice.
Made using high-carbon Daido 1K6 stainless steel, the blade of the Kai Wasabi Black 6” Deba Knife offers extraordinary sharpness and edge retention. Sharpened to a razor-keen 16˚ cutting edge, the blade is graze-finished for an appealing brushed-steel look. Constructed from polypropylene synthetic resin, the handle is crafted into an traditional Japanese easy-to-grip form. For best results, Kai Wasabi Black cutlery should be washed by hand.
The KAI corporation has been producing top-notch cutlery for three generations in Seki City, Japan. The Kai Wasabi Black 6” Deba Knife offers a limited lifetime warranty with complimentary lifetime sharpening service provided by Shun.
