This is the one knife that does it all: slice, dice, mince. It's the first knife any cook should own and the one you'll reach for time and again. The Kai Inspire Chef’s Knife offers a razor-sharp edge and a large blade with plenty of cutting length so you can handle even larger foods with ease. The belly curve makes it simple to do rocking cuts for processing herbs and smaller foods quickly. Of course, the good news is that you don't have to have just one kitchen knife. With Inspire's affordable pricing, you can have all the kitchen knives you need to make food preparation a genuine pleasure.
With its beautiful styling, top performance, and affordable price, the Kai Inspire series was made to inspire your cooking. The unique hammered finish is the first thing that will catch your eye. But once you try it, you'll come back to Inspire for its effortless cutting capabilities. The 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. Inspire's quality steel is easily the equal of much higher-priced competitors. For a comfortable and secure grip, Inspire's handles are contoured to fit both larger and smaller hands. A matching storage sheath is included with each piece of Inspire kitchen cutlery.
