If the bright green color of the Pure Komachi 2 Utility Knife reminds you to eat your vegetables, that's perfect. Because the utility knife is just the right size for working with a whole range of medium-sized vegetables and fruits. Trim broccoli and green beans. Slice tomatoes and mushrooms with ease. In size, a utility knife is between a chef's knife and a paring knife, which makes it the one to reach for when you want something that's light and agile, yet can still perform a full range of kitchen tasks. Some cooks even like to use it in their hand—almost like a large paring or petty knife. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich, which makes them perfect picnic knives, too.
Like all Pure Komachi 2 knives, the Utility Knife offers brilliant performance. The bright colors on both blade and handle make Pure Komachi 2 knives fun to use and they add eye-catching color to your kitchen. What’s more, those bright colors have a purpose. The color-coding helps guard against cross-contamination of food—for instance, by using the knife you just used on the meat to cut the veggies. The coated carbon stainless steel blades, hand-sharpened to a 16° cutting angle on each side, make quick work of most any kitchen task. The molded resin handles and comfortable and contoured for a secure grip. The blade coating is food safe and easy clean. While they are dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing to prolong the life of your blade as well as the colorful blade coating. Pure Komachi 2 knives now come with a matching sheath for easy storage.
