Description: A kitchen utility knife is between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, with a narrower and straighter blade. This makes it perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more 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. 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.
Cliff Parker is best known for his elegant, small folders. When he put his hand to making kitchen utilities, the result is truly exceptional.
The 4-1/2 inch long, slender blade is formed 1095 carbon steel. A traditional Japanese clay zone heat treatment results in a differential hardness. This technique, called honyaki in Japan, results in truly exceptional edge holding combined with strength and durability. The exceptionally hard cutting edge is cushioned by the softer, supportive spine. The undulating heat treatment line is called a hamon. Both the blade and full tang are distal tapered for a perfect balance. The blade geometry is beautifully thin and will be tremendously high performing.
The handle is made from presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood. The wood has a nice mix of warm and dark tones. Black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes.
Exceptional work throughout!
