Asian Set // Santoku + Paring Knife
Expertly handcrafted, perfectly balanced, and ultra durable, KOTAI bridges the gap between Eastern and Western knife making to bring the best of both worlds into a single, hybrid design.
The Santoku is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife. The name translates to “three virtues”, a reference to its versatile blade designed to chop vegetables and fruits, slice through meats, and prepare fish with ease. The “scallops”— series of hollow-ground cavities— reduce drag so the blade glides through food more easily.
While nearly everything on the cutting board can be done with a chef's knife, all your precise, off-the-board cutting tasks are best performed with a paring knife. KOTAI’s Paring Knife is a hybrid between a “sheep’s foot” and a “spear tip”. Its blade edge is mostly flat, allowing great precision and easy peeling, while its tip is slightly pointed, for intricate coring tasks.
These KOTAI knives feature a razor-sharp Japanese 440C high-carbon steel blade, which is rust-resistant and heat treated to 59 hardness to preserve its sharp edge cut after cut. Finished with an acute 15 degree blade edge and hand-polished pakkawood handles, these professional-quality knives make it effortless to cut through even the toughest food without compromising on comfort.
