In case you haven’t heard, the Japanese know knives, especially when it comes to the kitchen. Kyocera’s Limited LTD Cutlery Series is one such example of fine knife craftsmanship and this 7” Chef Knife is no different. It includes a handcrafted Pakka wood handle and each blade is hand finished as well.
The design for each knife is inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship and handmade in Seki, Japan. The handle, unique because of the time it takes to produce, is naturally contoured to the palm of the hand and provides the user with an intuitive, ergonomic feeling when holding the piece. Not only does this provide comfort but also enhances the cutting performance of the ceramic knife, making it ideal for slicing and chopping everything from herbs to vegetable to meats up to ten times longer than carbon steel knives. Ideal for the armchair chef, this knife will certainly find itself useful within the household kitchen. Time to get slicing Emeril. It’s available now online for $127. [Purchase]
