001 - Kiwi Brand carving knife with a three inch blade and a red plastic handle.
With a small but very capable three inch bird's beak style blade, Whether you are peeling and scraping vegetables or creating detailed fruit carving, this knife is the perfect choice.
The razor sharp cutting edge has a chisel grind, which means that it is bevelled on one side only. This results in a super sharp cutting edge which is perfect for creating detailed fruit carving.
The blade is made from a Japanese high carbon martensitic stainless steel (SUS420J2) which has been hardened and tempered for optimal sharpness. The red handle is made from a durable and hygienic 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.
