Kuro Kuma Ishi 240mm Chef Knife
There's no better way to show confidence in the kitchen than by wielding a big knife. This blade is big, but not so big that your mates think your lacking something below the belt.
Kuro Kuma Ishi Knife Series
Inspired by the hand-hammered copper and aluminium pots from Kansai, the pebble stone like surface pattern of the Ishi series is meticulously crafted.
Bucking the trend of whippet thin "laser" knives these blades are hammer forged with strong distal taper, thicker at the spine but quickly thin to a cutting edge with impressive out of the box sharpness. Another feature is exquisite forging and accurate quenching to high hardness. A joy to use and even more fun to sharpen.
Chef's Armoury have combined forged Japanese blades with unique Australian hardwoods to create the Kuro Kuma brand. The philosophy is simple - stylishly forged chef knives that are razor sharp, yet robust enough for a daily drive.
- Distinctive pebble stone finish
- Seriously sharp straight out of the box
- Hammer forged shirogami carbon steel
- Clad in stainless steel for easy care
- 50/50 edge grind suitable for left and right handed users
- As all knives are handmade the pattern will vary from blade to blade
- Australian made jarrah handles
Note: Over time a natural patina will form on the exposed edge of carbon steel. The edge will change colour. This is the nature of carbon steel. For maintenance we recommend camellia oil and rust cleaner. Read the Care Instructions tab.
