Japanese chefs use this knife to slice, dice, and mince food. Slicing is a technique that makes food look neat and is often used to show presentation. Slicing means cutting widthwise, like you would when cutting paper, with a knife. Slicing produces a clean cut with every bite of food every time.

This knife does not slip because the shoulder and the edge are both ground convex. This means that pretty much all the cutting force of the knife goes into the cut. For taller cuts, place your knife on the cutting board with the steel flat against the board. In this position, your wrist does not absorb all the force of the cut. Cutting when resting on the cutting board helps prevent the ingredients from flying away as well. Precision cutting also takes less time because the knife is held steady.

Zelite Infinity has developed this knife with the input of 3-4 of the top knife-making Masters in the World. All of our Japanese Steel Knives are individually tested using internationally approved tests for Total Carbon, Chromium, Manganese, Silicon, Molybdenum, and Sulphur. The blade geometry has been tested and proven to be dead flat, making this the most accurate cutting performance PERFORMANCE KNIFE available.
