Information

172 - Kiwi Brand cook's knife with a seven inch blade and a wooden handle.

The 172 chef's knife is available as a Kiwi Brand or Kom-Kom Brand version and is a perfect all-purpose choice for common kitchen tasks such mincing, slicing, chopping vegetables and slicing meat.

The blade is approximately seven inches long and just less than two inches wide (see diagram for detailed dimensions) while the knife edge is perfectly flat with a small curve towards the tip.

Taking inspiration from the Japanese Nakiri knife in both it's shape (the profile) and style (the grind, which is a double bevel style), 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.

While the 172 style knife is available as either a Kiwi (172) or Kom-Kom (172KK) version. The Kom-Kom branded knives are produced to a higher standard of finish and production specification than their cheaper selling Kiwi Brand counterpart.

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.  The handle is made from untreated hardwood and will benefit from the occasional application of a food grade oil to maintain the health of the wood, avoiding shrinkage and keeping the handle looking like new.

These knives are fairly light weight but are well made from good materials. They are very good value for the money. This one is ideal for chopping and slicing veg.
