With colors conveniently coded to avoid cross-contamination, the Kai Pure Komachi II 6.5 Santoku with Sheath (pink) offers a bright pink hue to brighten your kitchen. The santoku shape represents a traditional Japanese chef s knife, and offers a versatility similar to that of a Westerns chef s knife. Use this blade to chop, slice, mince and dice nearly any food, fish, meats, vegetables, fruits and herbs. The blade s hollow-ground indentations create air pockets between food and blade as you slice, preventing food from sticking.
The Kai Pure Komachi II 6.5 Santoku with Sheath (pink) glides through food easily and without sticking, owing to the colorful, FDA-approved, non-stick resin coating that s similar to Teflon. This durable coating guards against corrosion and rust, and makes for a simple cleanup. While a Pure Komachi II knife might seem playful with its bright color, its high-carbon stainless steel blade offers a formidably razor-sharp 16 cutting angle. A Kai Pure Komachi II knife is dishwasher safe, but hand-washing will generally result in longer life. To protect the blade s coating, do not use the knife to cut frozen food, and avoid scouring pads or gritty cleanser.
The handle of a Pure Komachi II knife matches the blade color and offers a lightweight, ergonomic design for a stress-free, comfortable grip. A coordinating blade guard comes with each knife to protect fingers and shield the blade when not in use.
The KAI corporation has been producing outstanding blades for over one hundred years in Seki City, Japan. The Kai Pure Komachi II 6.5 Santoku with Sheath (pink) carries a 10 year limited warranty against manufacturing defects and complimentary lifetime sharpening service provided by Shun.
