From its sharp tip, which can be used to peel ginger, to its long, straight edge, perfect for portioning meat, the Kai Luna Asian Utility Knife is a beautiful multi-tasking blade. This is not a meat cleaver. It's a utility knife that's perfect for processing vegetables for stir fry and thinly slicing meats. We call it a utility knife because every part of this knife can be put to use. Use the flat to smash a garlic clove. Use the back to tenderize meat. Use the tip and razor-sharp edge for everything from skinning fish to shaving vegetables. Once you use it, you'll find yourself reaching for this precision knife more and more often.
The Kai Luna series offers exciting style and performance at a value price. With its unique hammered finish, it offers eye-catching good looks. But Luna also gives you top cutting performance. Its high-carbon stainless steel blade has been expertly hardened for exceptional edge retention, strength, and rigidity. Mirror polish on the upper part of the blade and a graze finish on the lower part add beauty as well as enhancing stain and corrosion resistance. The edge is hand sharpened and finished to a razor-sharp 16° cutting edge each side. Luna’s quality steel is easily the equal of much higher-priced competitors. For comfortable cutting, Luna's handles offer lightweight maneuverability and reduced cutting fatigue. Soft-grip overlays on the top and bottom of the handle provide a secure grip. From its beautiful blade finish and razor-sharp edge to its contemporary styling, Kai's Luna series provides the performance good cooks demand at a price that even aspiring cooks can afford. A matching storage sheath is included with each piece of Luna kitchen cutlery.
