The Sujihiki knife 23 cm  KAI  KAMAGATA Tim Mälzer is a long, narrow blade knife that allows cleaner cuts and helps keep more of the juices—and thus more of the flavor—trapped in the meat. 

The longer blade is suitable for precise slices with a single stroke, while the narrower profile helps the blade glide through the meat with even less friction.

It can be used as well for thinly slicing other ingredients such as cucumbers or smoked salmon. It is the Western-style equivalent of the traditional Yanagi knife.

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.
