The Shikoku Cleaver is as unique as stunning. A super sharp blade, stainless, well balanced and simply beautiful. The handle is made of colored wood and blue resin in a special production process, that is only mastered by a few Professionals. It is waterproof, antibacterial, heat resistant and non-slip. Since only natural materials are used, each handle is unique and can slightly vary in color or pattern.
But the exquisite rose Damascus blades are also a real eye-catcher. They consist of a VG10 Core, covered by a 67-layer high quality Japanese Damascus steel. A vacuum heat process is used to harden the blade, which results in a hardness of 60 ± 2 HRC. In the end, each knife gets a hand sharpening finish. This ensures a long-lasting sharpness, which takes your cooking to a new level and increases your pleasure.
Originally made for the Asian kitchen, the Chinese cleaver has long since become a favourite in the American kitchen. No wonder, after all this exotic model is extremely versatile and very handy.
What is special is its unusually wide blade, which is about twice as long as it is high. You can use it to cut or chop tendons and bones effortlessly. Even more: the front part of the blade is extremely sharp and is used by professional and hobby cooks for processing fish and meat. A powerful knife that enriches your knife set and allows you to create new preparation variations.
This collection is named after Japanese islands and each knife is as beautiful as the islands themselves. Characteristic of the WASABI Island Special Collection are the colorful handles, which are well balanced to ensure long, comfortable and fatigue-free working.
Knives from this collection are the ideal gift for passionate and aspiring hobby chefs, making even the most demanding friends and family members very satisfied.
