152 - Kom-Kom five inch rectangular blade knife with a hardwood handle.
This is a small, general purpose knife which is perfect for mincing, slicing, chopping vegetables and slicing meat.
The blade is approximately five inches long and is just over one inch wide (see diagram for detailed dimensions) while the knife edge is perfectly flat with a very small curve towards the tip.
Taking inspiration from the Japanese Nakiri knife in both it's shape (the profile) and style (the blade grind, which has a double bevel), the blade is only 1mm thick and so it excels at chopping vegetables, as there is less resistance when compared to western style blades. Overall it is lightweight and well balanced.
Known globally by their reputation as the best knives that Thailand has to offer, Kiwi Brand and Kom-Kom knives are both attractive and practically suited for everyday use.
The blade is made from SUS420J2 Japanese Martensitic stainless steel, which is a high carbon stainless steel alloy that is specially heat treated and tempered which ensures sharpness and unrivalled durability and it has an ironwood hardwood handle which is attractive and hard-wearing.
