The Santoku knife 17 cm  KAI  KAMAGATA Tim Mälzeris a beautiful, Asian-inspired knife. 

It is designed for vegetables, proteins, fruit for slicing, dicing, and chopping, that is to say, it is a multi-purpose knife.
The slight belly curve enables the cook to rock the blade slightly and makes this santoku as easy to use as a chef's knife. It is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut)

The Santoku bōchō (Japanese: 三徳包丁; "three virtues" or "three uses") is shorter, lighter, thinner, and more hardened (to compensate for thinness) than a traditional Western chef's knife.
The three cutting tasks which the knife performs well are: slicing, dicing, and mincing.

The Tim Mälzer Kamagata series of kitchen knives makes an impact with its high standard of functionality, robust quality and minimalist aesthetics. With its clean-lined design, the knife collection focuses on the essentials required for efficient processes in the kitchen. At the beginning of the multi-year development process in Japan, Tim Mälzer designed the original blade shape himself. 

The stylish curve of the blade gives the knives their characteristic contour. The name "Kamagata" (Japanese for "sickle-shaped") is derived from this distinctive shape. The blades are made of stainless steel with a polished finish. In combination with the black handle, the knives have an efficient, cool look and guarantee excellent handling and ergonomic features. Thanks to the special coordination of the different blade shapes, the Tim Mälzer Kamagata series provides the right knife for every purpose. 

The attractively shaped blades are forged from 1.4116 German stainless steel. They have a hardness of 57 (±1) HRC and are therefore corrosion resistant. Tim Mälzer's logo and personal signature are applied to the blade and, together with the satin finish, complete the exclusive and high-quality overall look.

The polished handle is ergonomically shaped and the symmetrical alignment makes 
it suitable for both left-handed and right-handed users. It sits comfortably in the hand 
and provides a secure, comfortable hold when working. The perfect balance between the handle and blade makes cutting a particularly smooth experience. Made using polished POM plastic, the handle is water resistant, hygienic and easy to maintain.

Tim Mälzer’s own “bull in the kitchen” trademark adorns the end of the handle, 
adding a sophisticated highlight.


Made in Japan with the latest technology of the cutlery industry.
