CRKSIKAYO9: 9" Sikayo
Chris Reeve Knives

Chris Reeve Knives describes this item as follows:

For the better part of 25 years, Chris has been mulling over designs of kitchen knives. At last we see the range of chef's knives known as Sikayo. They showcase Chris's out-of-the-box ideas, incorporating concepts in the style of Japanese Sushi knives, countered with modern lines and state-of-the-art materials.

For as much as the word Sikayo might have a Japanese sound, it is the Zulu word for "sharp"! The cutting edge of the Sikayo is exceptional and truly lives up to the name.

The broad blade is ground only on one side for exceptional slicing; the cutting edge has a good curve that allows cutting with minimal pressure; the curve also facilitates "rocking" dicing of vegetables and herbs.

The handles are made from UItem1000® (a particularly durable plastic, capable of withstanding extreme temperatures). The handle slab on side against your palm is thicker than the other side, offering a comfortable hold without pressure; the full tang and the grooves in the UItem® give excellent radial grip. These knives are dedicated left or right handed!

Cons: Design
Be Aware
Ok so i am a chef of 15 years and know cooking blades. I love the japanese style blades and this caught my eye. I love cpm s35vn as a blade steel so no problem there. Once i had this in my hands it felt fantastic and the ergonomics are outstanding. Heres the part i cant live with. Because this knife has a hollow grind which transitions into fairly thick stock the knife wants to pull and lean to the left when chopping. I contacted Chris Reeve and was told we are not interested. I was astounded and disappointed as i thought maybe if they changed to a high flat grind this knife would be perfect. Please if you are serious about spending this kind of money be carefull about buying this one.

sharp is an understatment
My first Chris Reeve blade and this is one of the nicest kitchen knives I have ever held in my hands! The materials and overall production quality are outstanding and I am certain that I will be using this until I can no longer lift it with my hand. Hell, I might have to hire someone to lift my hand so that I will be able to continue to enjoy cutting things with it when i get older! It s that good.
