Conveniently color-coded to avoid cross-contamination, the Kai Pure Komachi 2 6 Multi-Utility Knife with Sheath (teal) excels with filleting fish and boning poultry and smaller cuts of meat. The slim, tapered blade offers a partially serrated edge and a pointed tip. The serrations near the heel of the blade excel with avocados, citrus, and other fruits and vegetables with thick rinds. The front of the curved blade is plain, and works well for mincing and slicing herbs, garlic, shallots, and other small foods.
Kai Pure Komachi 2 knives glide through food easily without sticking, owing to the FDA-approved, non-stick resin coating that is similar to Teflon and is what gives the knife its colorful appearance. This durable coating protects against rust and corrosion and also makes cleanup simple. While Pure Komachi 2 knives and their fun colors may appear playful, the cutting edge of these blades offers a serious 16 cutting angle and high-carbon stainless steel. The Kai Pure Komachi 2 6 Multi-Utility Knife with Sheath (teal) can be washed in the dishwasher, but hand washing is best. To help the blade coating last, do not use to cut frozen food, and avoid scouring pads and gritty cleansers.
The lightweight handle of a Pure Komachi 2 knife matches the color of its blade, with an ergonomic shape for stress-free, comfortable handling. The matching blade guard is included to protect fingers and shield the blade when not in use.
