CRKSIKAYO65: Sikayo, 6.5"
Chris Reeve Knives
For the better part of 25 years, Chris has been mulling over designs of kitchen knives. The range of chef's knives known as Sikayo showcases 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.
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 handle on the 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 1000 give excellent radial grip. This knife is dedicated for right handed use!

A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
