Kai Pro Chef's Knife 10"




Style : HT7078

Kai Pro knives come from Kai, the 110-year-old Japanese company that makes reknowned Shun cutlery. Kai Pro is intended for the aspiring cook, both at home and in commercial kitchens, who has outgrown entry-level cutlery. Kai Pro knives are certified for commercial use by the NSF (National Sanitation Foundation), and offer a combination of high performance, durability, and affordability that's quite remarkable. The 10" Kai Pro chef's knife is the choice for cooks who simply prefer a longer knife. The additional blade length gives you more cutting leverage and is especially handy when it comes to preparing larger foods. At the same time, the knife is an ideal choice for most cutting tasks: slicing, dicing, and chopping just about anything in the kitchen. The added length also lets you cut more food with fewer strokes. For example, you can conveniently cut several carrots at once instead of just one. But even though this is a large knife, the thin blade keeps the weight down and ensures that you can use the Kai Pro for a long time without getting tired.

Each Kai Pro knife features a blade made from Japanese AUS6M steel, which extends to the end of the handle for a balanced, full-tang construction. Kai Pro knives perform differently than western-style knives, which are usually sharpened at a 20-25 degree angle. Kai Pro takes a finer, 16 degree edge for smoother, sharper action. This Japanese-style hammered finish on the blades serves a function as well as giving a dramatic appearance. The hollow cavities form tiny pockets of air, helping release food from the steel. In addition, the finish reduces blade drag while cutting. The handles on Kai Pro knives are made from a high-performance thermoplastic that is extremely rigid, to add strength and comfort during food prep. As you cut, your hand will fit perfectly around the durable, riveted handle. This pro-level grip offers a lifetime of performance for home cooks and is equally ready for the hectic tasks of a commercial kitchen.
