SWEDK2: K1 White Whale

With this knife a new world standard is set. For the very first time an expensive high-end steel is used in serial production of advanced chefs knives. The benefit of using a special steel is that the blade can be made thinner, lighter and more rigid and this makes your kitchen work easier and more fun. The laminate VG10 special steel will make the edge last much longer and this is of course a particular advantage for professionals.

We have paid extra attention to the shape of the handle - the grip must fill the hand without being clumsy while offering a shape that you ensures a safety when working with the knife. We achieve this by making the handle of tacky Thermorun rubber - the better the grip is, the less fatiguing for your hands. On top of that, the handle is easy to keep clean as it has no grooves or dents. The hygienic aspect is an important detail for those who work with food in restaurants and eateries - not the least for their guests.

The tang runs through the handle at almost full width, which gives both stability and rigidity for the knife.

We regard the K2 knife as one of the most advanced chef´s knives in the world and we invite you to treat yourself to this everyday luxury. However, please note that none of these knives are adapted for cutting frozen food, nor chopping bones, this will inevitably result in a broken or bent edge. For such heavy tasks we advise you to use a saw or a cleaver. And finally, the best working base is a cutting board made of wood - they are also more hygienic than plastic.

The santoku designed K2 is one of the best knives for vegetables. Thin cut, fresh vegetables are wholesome, they look neat and taste terrific finely shredded. Only the perfectly designed Santoku will do that!

Best knife we have
We have a set of Henckel kitchen knives that we received as a wedding gift. We bought the K2 because my wife liked the shape of a santuko that she used at a friend's house and didn't have a santuko in the the henckel set. Since buying this knife 7 years ago, my wife has not used any other knife except a bread knife and the paring knife from the Henckel set. The rest of the Henckel knives are mostly unused. VG10 steel stays sharp for a very long time. It's easy to sharpen. This knife with VG10 laminated between more rust resistant steel is the perfect combo for kitchen use. I rarely give 5 stars to anything, but the K2 is seriously best production kitchen knife I've ever seen.

Uber chef's knife
This is my second of these knives, and I purchased it as a back-up. Knife is light in hand with an extremely thin/sharp/efficient edge bevel. Handle is just soft enough to offer a comfortable grip in all positions for prolonged use and cleans up quickly with soapy water, no apparent residue. I would rate this knife A+ for general kitchen use on vegetables, both soft and fibrous, as well as carving meat, both raw and cooked. It hasn't replaced the other chef's knives in my kitchen--they're still there in the block--but I have not reached for anything but the K2 in years, except for a long, serrated bread slicer on occasion.
