The Chef's knife is a multipurpose knife for slicing, dicing, and chopping ingredients with precision.

KAI has created another innovative masterpiece of Japanese blacksmithing with its Shun Nagare Series. Its sophisticated design, the special properties of the materials employed, and a technically complex production process places this series of knives among the pinnacle of the luxury class. An artfully decorated, radial pattern of Damascus layers adorns the highly polished blades. This effect, combined with the mottled grey-black handle, lends the knife an impressive overall appearance.

The series' blades consist of two different types of steel, which are bonded to form a 72-layered piece of Damascus steel. This complex layering of two types of steel results in a blade with exceptional cutting performance, which has been recognised by the awarding of the German Design Award 2017 Special Mention.

Kai began in 1908, revered for its blend of traditional samurai blacksmithing and modern manufacturing to craft knives of exceptional quality. Hailing from Seki, the historic heart of Japanese knife smithing, Kai has earned a reputation for creating knives that are not only razor-sharp and durable but also beautifully balanced and effortless to use. Since their introduction into Europe in 1980, Kai has expanded its range, innovating with designs that include Western-inspired chef’s knives and ambidextrous handles, as seen in their acclaimed Kai Shun Premier and Kai Shun Nagare series, making the brand a favourite among professional chefs and cooking enthusiasts worldwide.
