Description: Okeya knives are made by a multi generational family blacksmith shop run by Okeya-san and his son. Okeya-san's grandfather started the company making small, handy knives (kiridashi) for multi-purpose uses such as cutting, whittling, and some cooking utility knives. They plan to make knives for generations to come.
The utility knife is perfect for a multitude of small tasks where precise cuts are needed such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too—almost like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife. Its slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.
A central core of hard VG10 stainless steel is set between thin layers of stainless steel, resulting in a keen, long lasting edge with easy maintenance. The blade has a migaki (satin) finish.
The ambidextrous oval handle fits comfortably and securely in the hand. It is formed from cherry wood and is completed with a plastic ferrule.
This knife provides fantastic performance at an economy price.
