Our Kumadori Vegetable Knife will appeal to the chef or cook who prefers a relatively lighter weight blade. The maker concentrates his efforts to provide a blade with outstanding sharpness, edge holding qualities and ease of sharpening in addition to being tarnish and rust resistant. The blades are made by forging tough, durable Sandvik 19C27 special steel between two layers of soft SUS304 stainless steel. The unique feature of these knives is the cryogenic tempering process which contains freezing at -70 degrees Fahrenheit to a final hardness of Rc 61 – 62. Every knife is sharpened by hand on a series of three bench stones to a razor edge. The handles are comprised of laminated wood and are attached to the blade with a chrome steel bolster. Highly really helpful by Columbus, Ohio’s King of the Grill. Blade length is 6½? and overall length is 11½?.
