Sakon Molybdenum Single Bevel Ko-deba NT Series

No Comments 26 Jul 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Paring Knife


In the world of kitchen knives I have always thought there is a great difference better the Easter and Western  hemisphere kitchen cutlery.  The Western side we use a heavier knife for cutting large cuts of meats and heavy chopping while in the Eastern side more lighter foods like fish, vegetables and fruits using a lighter knife fo make sure a delicate cut is removing or filleting all you can get out of that item

The Sakon Molybdenum Single Bevel Ko-deba NT Series of Japanese kitchen knivesSakon-KoDeba-574x574  is made from a Molybdenum Vadadaium which is just a little softer steel than some other kitchen knives, which means it’s just a little lower on the Rockwell scale.  By doing this the blade is much easier to maintain and sharpen and less likely to break a chunk out if dropped or hit just right on a hard surface.  I have this knife and it is incredibly sharp, I use it for cutting  and chopping primarily fruits and vegetables

This is a single bevel, so they do take a little time to practice with, but once you get used to it, you will truly love it.
