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 degree cutting angle, you’ll like the looks and the performance of Wasabi. The Wasabi 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. ?
