KS5700: Personal Folding Steak Knife

If you've ever been to a restaurant and struggled to cut your food with a dull knife served up with your meal, the answer is the KAI Personal Steak Knife. Kept discreetly in its own leather sheath in pocket or purse, this folding knife is lightweight and razor-sharp—and your dining dilemma is solved.

The design of the KAI Personal Steak Knife is based on the original Japanese-style folding pocket knife. Like the original, it opens easily with a slim, elegant lever, but with no spring assist. Unlike the original, this knife features a secure liner lock to ensure the blade stays safely open during use. The quality blade is made of Japanese 420J2 stainless steel with a beautiful finish. With its razor-sharp 16° cutting angle each side, the KAI Personal Steak Knife makes it easy to cut your food and helps make dining a pleasure. The handle is durable POM (a precision engineering thermoplastic) with a decorative inlaid crest reminiscent of Japanese family emblems. For easy storage, the knife folds to fit inside its own leather sheath.

Surprisingly nice portable 'steak knife'
I've never owned anything like this, but the recent KnifeCenter holiday sale promotion and the fact I was buying a couple other knives at the same time tempted me into going ahead. The KAI folding steak knife is really quite nice. Sharp as heck, unfolds easily and locks securely, and feels quite nice in the hand. I have exactly one complaint: Mine arrived in one of those horrid plastic clamshells and this one was worse than most to open. I know it's done for retail store displays, but it always feels cheap to get a nice item encased in plastic that takes 10 minutes to cut away with scissors, constantly at risk of cutting my fingers on sharp plastic edges. Makes for a poor first impression, y'know? Anyway, we don't eat out often, but when we do, I could definitely see the benefit of this knife over a restaurant knife that's been used and then through a sterilizing dishwasher hundreds of times. I haven't tried yet, but it looks to me like disassembly for cleaning, if/when needed wouldn't be difficult at all. There's three star-drive screws near the bottom of the handle and a larger one right at the hinge.

Nice surprise
Overall quality is very good ****. The price is very good ****. Value for the money ***** I use as intended for steak. Class and utility. I didn't even have to sharpen it when new. I was expecting less and was reluctant to purchase at this price level. Surprisingly, I believe that this knife will last as long as I take care to properly clean after use. And I can someday pass it on. The workmanship on my knife leaves nothing for me to complain about and that is saying something. If you are tired to going to a steak house for a tasty steak and getting a knife that's never been sharpened, that will barely saw through the steak which leaves a less juicey/flavorable experience, just buy this. Great price and real value.
