This is my favorite knife for many carving projects – most especially for Thai style melon & fruit carving.
I had been using a lesser quality knife of similar design and was having trouble carving small zig-zag patterns. When I first used one of these, I fell in love. Wow. This knife was so dramatically better and sharper I could hardly believe it. I had thought my inability to cut the fine pattern was due to my lack of skill. Turns out the sharpness and quality of the blade made a huge difference – for the better.
This knife is very very sharp and makes cutting peeled melons almost like cutting through butter. It’s rounded stainless steel handle makes it easy to turn the knife when carving fine details. It’s nice light weight and balance make it a pleasure to work with. And as a bonus, it’s very quite beautiful with its traditional Thai design of flowing colors on a shiny metallic surface.
The flexible blade is made of strong but lightweight stainless steel and is 1 3/4 inches long.
These knives are handmade by a master blades man and imported from Thailand.
Favored by professional fruit carvers, these are great for intermediate and advance carvers. Beginners can use them as well but should be very careful with them as they are very sharp.
Recommended care to maintain beauty and sharpness – carefully hand wash these knives and dry with a soft cloth right away and replace the sheath. Never submerge is a sink full of soapy water because you’ll risk cutting yourself when you reach in the retrieve your knife. NOT dishwasher safe.
If you are seeking a gift for an intermediate or experienced fruit carver, these make for valued and appreciated gifts that will provide pleasure for years.
