21KK - Kom-Kom 8" cleaver knife with a wooden handle.
The 21KK's profile is somewhere between a traditional chef's knife and a Chinese cleaver. The blade is 1mm thick and the cutting edge has a double bevel so this knife has no problem slicing through vegetables and meat. The wide blade is 61mm and so it has a good surface area for picking up ingredients that have been chopped or sliced. Unlike a traditional Chinese cleaver, the 21KK has a pointed tip.
The blade is made from Japanese high carbon martensitic stainless steel (SUS420J2) which has been hardened and tempered for optimal sharpness. This knife has a razor sharp, double bevelled cutting edge and it has a high quality hardwood handle which is secured with brass rivets.
As the handle wood is untreated, it 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. See the "knife care" tab for more details.
