The Furi Pro Asian Vegetable Chopper 6-Inch blade (15 cm) makes light work of heavy vegetables thanks to its super sharp but wide blade. Its width also makes it great for smashing garlic as well as scooping and transferring food. Oversized scallops on the blade help reduce friction to make cutting faster and easier. Furi Knives designed and established in 1996 by leading Australian engineers and international chefs, has won respect, awards and popularity for its exceptional performance, designs and durability. Furi knives feature a seamless, all Japanese stainless steel construction. The smooth, seamless contours do away with food and dirt traps for the ultimate in safety and hygiene. The blade is constructed from a high carbon stainless steel alloy that is different from typical German and modern Japanese blades because the alloy is not VrMoV based. Quite, it is high carbon and due to this fact tougher and easier to sharpen and also holds its edge a very long time. Chefs and experienced knife users find it is more like carbon steel knives, but with corrosion resistance. Furi achieves a blade that is both strong and sharp by grinding carefully to very thin shoulders (for less cutting resistance), but with a strong cutting edge at 17 degrees (not 15). Our blades are the only ones that sit right in the middle between very sharp but fragile Japanese blades, and very strong but not so sharp German blades. The best practical combination conceivable for chefs. Developed for the professional chef; Furi knives are tough, weighty and more comfortable with a reverse wedge deal with design that resists slip toward the blade referred to as hand creep. This leads to much less fatigue for heavy knife users (and due to this fact less carpal tunnel and related strain injuries, common to chefs). The optimum bolster design allows the user to fully sharpen the knife to the blade heel even as providing a comfortable finger rest. Furi Cutlery offer superior performance and comfort. 25 year guarantee.
