For kitchen tasks that are too big for a paring knife and too small for a chef’s knife, reach for the Kai Inspire Utility Knife. A utility knife is handy for larger peeling jobs or when precision trimming is required, such as when you’re cutting broccoli florets for stir-fry or removing the tough stems from kale. Because the blade is smaller and lighter, it’s easy to work with it in tighter places where larger knives wouldn’t offer the right amount of precision and control.
With its beautiful styling, top performance, and affordable price, the Kai Inspire series was made to inspire your cooking. The unique hammered finish is the first thing that will catch your eye. But once you try it, you’ll come back to Inspire for its effortless cutting capabilities. The high-carbon stainless steel blade has been expertly hardened for exceptional edge retention, strength, and rigidity. Mirror polish on the upper part of the blade and a graze finish on the lower part add beauty as well as enhancing stain and corrosion resistance. The edge is hand sharpened and finished to a razor-sharp 16° cutting edge each side. Inspire’s quality steel is easily the equal of much higher-priced competitors. For a comfortable and secure grip, Inspire’s handles are contoured to fit both larger and smaller hands. A matching storage sheath is included with each piece of Inspire kitchen cutlery.
