860a - Kom-Kom six inch cleaver knife with Special Blade and a Hardwood Handle.

The 860a Kom-Kom is a six inch cleaver knife with a "special blade".  This refers to the multiple scalloped grind (see illustration for details). This minimises ingredients sticking to the blade as they are being cut.

Cleaver knives (sometimes referred to a chopper) are a lighter weight class of "cleavers" and while they can still be used for cutting and slicing meat they are not suitable for cutting though bones.

They are a general purpose knife that is best suited to jobs like preparing vegetables, and herbs and able to perform all slicing, chopping, and mincing jobs with ease.  Their wide blade design also makes them a convenient tool to use when transferring ingredients from the cutting board to the wok or other cooking pot.

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.

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.

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.
