This Chef's knife from the Messermeister Kawashima collection can handle nearly every food prep task with ease. Use it for routine cutting tasks like chopping, slicing, and dicing. This collection was created in partnership with Japanese blacksmith Shoichi Kawashima.

Features san mai blade construction using SG2 powdered steel. The blade boasts 64 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention, with a 15 degree edge angle on each side and a Japanese kiritsuke-style tip. The result is a well-balanced, highly maneuverable tool that feels perfect in the hand.
