East meets West in the Wasabi series from Kai. The look is traditional Japanese, but in addition to classic Japanese blade styles, Wasabi also features Western-style blades. The Wasabi Paring Knife is one example. This handy paring knife is perfect for all your peeling and coring tasks—and any time precision cuts are needed. It’s one of the most important pieces of kitchen cutlery and is sure to become a central piece in your Wasabi collection. With its clean, contemporary design and razor-like 16° cutting angle, you’ll like the looks and the performance of Wasabi.
The Wasabi series from Kai features traditional Japanese single-bevel blade shapes as well as a selection of double-bevel Western-style blade shapes. Single-beveled blades excel when extremely precise cuts are needed—for example, when preparing sushi. Double-beveled blades offer ease of use and versatility. Wasabi brings you the best of both worlds. The blades are high-carbon stainless steel designed to take and hold a sharp edge and come with a graze finish that gives them an attractive, brushed look. Paired with black polypropylene handles in a traditional Japanese style, Wasabi brings beauty and harmonious food preparation to any kitchen.
