The Kai HT7077 is a Asian Utility Knife that is part of the PRO Series. The knife features a 7.00 in. blade that is made of Japanese AUS6M stainless steel. It also features full-tang construction and a riveted POM handle for comfortable and secure grip. The Kai PRO Asian Utility Knife was made with versatility in mind. In fact, every part of this multi-tasking blade can be used. That includes from its sharp tip, which can be used to peel ginger, to its long, straight edge, perfect for portioning meat. This is not a meat cleaver. It’s a utility knife that’s great for processing vegetables for stir fry and thinly slicing meats. Use the flat to smash a garlic clove, or use the back to tenderize meat. You can also use the tip and razor-sharp edge for everything from skinning fish to shaving vegetables. With so many ways to use the blade, you’ll often find yourself choosing this versatile knife.
