171P - Kiwi Brand cook's knife with a six and a half inch blade and a black plastic handle.

The Kiwi and Kom-Kom "171" style chef's knife is available in 3 flavours:  the Kiwi Brand (171p) with a plastic handle, the Kiwi Brand (171) with a wooden handle or the Kom-Kom Brand (171KK), which also has a wooden handle but is higher quality.

The 171 is a perfect all-purpose choice for common kitchen tasks such mincing, slicing, chopping vegetables and slicing meat.

The blade is approximately six inches and a half inches long and is just over one and a half inches wide (see diagram for detailed dimensions) while the knife edge has a double bevel and a gradual curve towards the tip.

Taking some inspiration from the Japanese knives like the Santoku and Deba style knives this knife has a blade that is super thin when compared to traditional western style knives and it is lightweight and well balanced, so it excels when cutting a wide range of vegetables.

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 Japanese high carbon stainless steel (SUS420J2) which has been hardened and tempered for optimal sharpness.  As well as the wave shape, the blade has a razor sharp scalloped cutting edge.  The handle is made from a durable and hygienic, black polypropylene plastic.

 

Keep the blade away from strong acids or alkalis such as fish sauce or vinegar.
Do not use wire wool to clean as it may damage the blade. Wash with a soft sponge and dry immediately.

Avoid putting wooden handled knives in a dishwasher as the high temperature and extended period in water will shrink and dry the wood and will ultimately ruin the knife.

This knife is made with a Japanese high carbon martensitic stainless steel alloy(SUS420J2) which has the benefit of being harder and therefore sharper than many other stainless steels but the trade-off is that they are more prone to staining.

If your knife has a wooden handle, it is recommended to oil the handle occasionally with a food grade oil. The choice of oil is a personal preference however groundnut and rapeseed oil appear to be popular but avoid olive oil as this can go rancid quite quickly. This will help maintain the wood and keep your knife looking like new. Be very careful while doing this to avoid cutting yourself.

Store knives in a dedicated storage solution such as a wooden box or wall hanger, see our knife storage options .

Keep in a safe location away from children.

I read about Kiwi knives and this one lived up to expectations. Very sharp and nice to handle in the kitchen. Service was very fast and when I raised a query with chopchop on another item in my order it was resolved particularly well. First rate service
