Description: A utility knife is between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, with a narrower and straighter blade. This makes it perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too—almost like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.
Ohishi's Aogami Tsuchime knives feature a premium Super Blue (aogami super) carbon steel core. This is surrounded by protective SUS410 stainless steel. There is probably no finer combination of durability and "sharpenability" than Aogami Super steel. The fine grain particulates in this steel allow a beautifully keen edge, which will then be extremely durable. The combination of a high performance carbon steel core and stainless sides also provides easier care. It is hardened to Hrc 64 for superior edge retention. This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and chip resistant edge that is relatively easy to sharpen. While it is much easier to care for this knife than a full carbon steel knife, it still must be hand washed and dried to avoid rusting the core. We recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust. A hammer finished surface helps stop foods from sticking to the side of the knife. The blade is exceptionally thin and cuts with virtually no resistance. The ambidextrous blade features a 50/50 grind.
Handle scales are made from thin layers of laminated wood impregnated with resin -- and easily meets the rigorous demands of a home or commercial kitchen. A triple riveted full tang runs the full length of the handle for strength and longevity. Stainless steel bolsters separate the handle and blade and stop food particles from getting between the handle and tang.
Aogami Tsuchime knives by Ohishi are sure to be a favorite in your kitchen.
