This Office knife, also called Petty knife, is a typical Japanese cooking tool used on a daily basis for all smaller, precise cutting tasks in the kitchen: peeling, pitting fruit, chopping herbs, creating garnishes. Once you start using it, you'll always want it within reach.
Due to perfect weight distribution between blade and handle, the handling of the knife is ergonomic and optimal.
The NK/PK line of knives is a very interesting choice for both the home cook and the professional.
Contrary to the traditional wood handle knives (which have joints) or the very popular Global knives (which attracts dirt in the handle's small holes) the NK/PK line is highly hygienic and can be wholly sanitized. It's edge is ground mostly on one side (a 30 /70 ratio) making it a right hand only knife. When used with this hand, the 70/30 sharpening will bring more "bite" to the cutting action.
The handle has a nice feeling and the knife is really lightwight, turning it into a great choice for those making an extensive use of it.
The NK/PK alloy can keep a very good edge and is easy to sharpen back (HRC 58.) Its composition also includes chrome and vanadium, which will prevent rust. Although it needs care like all quality knives, the NK/PK line of japanese knives will keep up to any kitchen work.
