926AK - Kom-Kom boning & fillet knife with a six inch blade and hardwood handle.
The Kom-Kom 926AK is a boning and fillet knife with a long narrow blade and a very sharp point. It is mainly used in the preparation of meat and poultry for removing the bones but it can also be used with fish. The 2mm blade thick blade is not flexible and so it is a good knife for using with beef and pork where precision boning, especially deep cuts and holes, is required. This knife is not a flexible bladed fillet knife, like the ones typically used to fillet fish.
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 details.
