Note: Due to the impact of the coronavirus on logistics, our STANDARD size knives cannot be shipped out except United States. Sorry!
As many fans sent emails saying: they want the knife in Ziqi's video. This hand-forged knife is perfect for cutting meat with bones, wood, fish, and for everyday use in the kitchen. It's also Ziqi's favorite knife. It is a very common kitchen knife in Sichuan, China, but not in other countries. Therefore, we contacted a local supplier of handmade knives in Sichuan to purchase a batch of the same knives to meet the needs of our fans.
Before buying, we need to tell you its disadvantage: it rusts more easily than stainless steel kitchen knives. The knife is made of spring steel, which has a relatively high carbon content of about 0.6%-0.9%. It has higher tensile strength and fatigue resistance compared to stainless steel kitchen knives. As a result, it is harder and more durable, but also more prone to rusting. After each use, it is necessary to clean the stain on the blade and dry the water. If you do not use it for a long time, please apply a layer of cooking oil. If you are only cutting vegetables, fruits, and bread, then a regular stainless steel knife may be more suitable for you.
It is made using traditional Chinese hand forging technology.
Made from a single piece of spring steel, without any solder joints, it is more durable than traditional stainless steel kitchen knives.
The curved top of the knife is designed so that the center of gravity of the knife is concentrated on the head of the knife. This design makes it like a hammer, and it is very labor-saving when you cut things, just like tapping something with a hammer. It is ideal for cutting meat with bones, wood, fish, and using it in daily use in the kitchen.
Tips: The oxide layer produced during forging is retained on the knife body, which is a protective layer. All knives are factory coated with a layer of protective oil to prevent rust. Before using it for the first time, you can soak it in boiling water and clean it with a steel ball. You can clear them completely and this will not affect their use. It is recommended to clean and dry the water to prevent rust after each use.
