503 - Kiwi Brand fruit knife with a four inch blade and a hardwood handle.

The Kiwi Brand model 503 is a small and elegant fruit knife made from Japanese SUS 420J2 high carbon steel with a wooden handle. It is a light-weight paring knife which is great for performing kitchen tasks with ease. It is especially suited for working with small ingredients such as strawberries, nectarines, lychees, etc.

Ergonomic and well balanced, specially designed to make light work of common paring tasks. The distinctive blade is around 4 inches long, the blade extends about 1/3 of the way down the 3.5 inch handle with a thickness of 1mm and width of 1 inch at the base. - See diagram for the full specification.

The Kiwi Brand 503 is a light and durable cutting tool with a great balance between blade and handle, the fruit knife is a great choice for handheld cutting in which accuracy and lightness are important. A perfect choice repetitious tasks such as trimming and de-seeding.

The 503 is an excellent all-purpose blade, suitable for activities such as mincing garlic, trimming herbs, removing spines from peppers or de-veining prawns.

The double bevelled, razor sharp blade is made from Japanese martensitic stainless steel (SUS420J2). This is a high carbon stainless steel alloy that has been specially heat treated and tempered to ensure optimal sharpness and unrivalled durability.  The handle is made from natural ironwood and so will benefit from the periodical application of a food grade oil, to help maintain the health of the wood, avoiding shrinkage and keeping the handle looking like new.

The Kom Kom 503-1 is almost identical to the Kiwi 503 but has a higher quality finish.

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 Japanese High Carbon Steel (SUS 420J2) which has the benefit of being harder and therefore sharper than 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 periodically with a food grade oil. This is a personal preference however groundnut and rapeseed oil appear to be popular. 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.
