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 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.

Cuts MEAT Effectively and Efficiently
I use this knife for cutting meat... I am not a trained chef but I know what I like... This knife cuts through semi frozen meat, and easily through anything not frozen... Like butter, I have to watch where my fingers are... It cleans up easy, has a good handle - no slipping at all.... What else...? I think it is a much better knife than I am a cook, and will always out perform me, that is always a good thing to have - lots of room for growth... I like how with veggies it sort of kicks them off with the curve of the grind.... But I don't eat enough greens to have tried it on many veggies... My Doctor reminds me too....

Beautiful and functional
I use my Sikayo every time I am cooking. The 6.5 inch is the perfect size for me. It has a very sharp blade which I love. I did not realize that the blade was sharp on only one side...but it is still very easy to use!

Sibenza come kitchen
As a Sibenza owner buying a sikayo for my girlfriend was an easy choice. She is a designer and great cook. The sikayo has a wonderful shape and austere design that just sings in your hand. She is very happy with this knife.
