923AK - Kom-Kom cook knife with an eight inch (Special Blade), high carbon stainless steel blade with a quality hardwood handle
This knife is reminiscent of a scimitar sword as the blade curves upwards and tapers to a razor-sharp tip. Scimitar (sometimes spelled cimeter) style of knives are a type of butcher knife that are used for prepping and cutting meat. Their long, curved blades are ideal for trimming fat off ribs or for example breaking down a large cut of beef.
Breaking knives which are another very similar style of butcher knife that are used for cutting large sections of meat into smaller cuts and trimming fat from cuts of meat. Both of these types of butcher knives feature curved blades, which gives the user additional leverage when cutting through tough skin, cartilage, and small bones.
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 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.
