What is so great about the Kai Wasabi Black knives?

By now, you are already aware that one of the things that makes the Wasabi Black series so popular is the great price of its knives. However, there is much more than that. The knives themselves are tools of great quality that anyone would love to have in the kitchen. As with any kitchen knife, the main parts that define the quality (and also the beauty) of a knife are the blade and the handle. Therefore, so that you can understand what makes Wasabi Black knives so great, here we give you a brief explanation of their blades and handles:

- The blade:

Sharp and durable, The blades of Kai Wasabi Black kitchen knives are made and designed to make cutting tasks easier. Honoring the well-known reputation of Japanese knives, the blade is characterised for a high level of sharpness that allows you to cut your food ingredients with ease and precision. It is made of Daido 1K6 high-carbon stainless steel. The high content of carbon in the steel enables the blade to reach a high rating (58 HRC) in the Rockwell hardness scale. However, although most carbon blades tend to struggle dealing with humidity, the type of steel used in the blades of Wasabi Black knives has great resistance to corrosion.

Moreover, the blades of all Wasabi Black knives are polished. Thus, their look give the knives a fine and elegant appearance that will add to your kitchen's decoration. It is also important to mention that the blades of most Wasabi Black knives are adapted for all types of cooks. Unlike in traditional Japanese knives, these blades are sharpened in both sides, so both left-handed and right-handed cooks can use them. However, we still encourage you to be careful and read the description of the products before buying it because, even though they are not a lot, there are some knives (for example: the yanagiba knives) that have single beveled blades and that means they can be only used by right or left-handed users.

Get your Kai Wasabi Black knife now!- The handle:

Probably the easiest way to distinguish or recognize a knife from the Wasabi Black series is by having a look at its handle. Indeed, all Wasabi Black knives have beautiful, black handles that are connected to the blade through a steel bolster. The elegant look caused by the contrast between the black handle and the steel bolster is something that should immediately make you think of the Wasabi Black series. The material from which the handle is made is a combination between bamboo powder and polypropylene. This combinations make the handles strong and durable.

Unlike most traditional Japanese knives, the handles of Wasabi Black knives are not inserted but actually embraced completely with the blade. This type of construction has the advantage of not leaving any gap between the blade and the handle where dirt or bacteria can settle in. This characteristic makes the Wasabi Black knives safe to use according to European hygienic standards.
