Beyond the aesthetic appeal, the hammering of the "Tsuchime" blade creates small air pockets between the blade and the food slices.
This ancestral Japanese method prevents the food from sticking to the blade for a pleasant and fast cutting.
The KOTAI paring knife has an ideal hybrid shape, combining a nearly flat blade edge for maximum precision and a very fine point for detail work.
The blade is forged from 440C steel, a premium steel that combines high carbon content for hardness and edge durability with the optimal amount of chromium to prevent oxidation.
The full hidden tang - a single piece of steel from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle - gives the paring knife ideal balance and outstanding durability.
Blade size: 20cm
Blade Material: 440C stainless steel with high carbon content
