Stay sharp with Mazama‘s 6 in. Chef’s Knife in Pakkawood. If you’re not familiar with the home goods brand, Mazama, they’ve been steadily hand-crafting vessels for your home- and now they’re working with master knife makers to offer a cutting implement that’s sure to stand apart from the dull blades collecting dust in your knife drawer.
What’s pakkawood you ask? It’s veneer and hardwood combined using thermoset resin, creating a water-resistant finish to reduce cracking and warping. Rest assured- you’ll be chopping blocks of tofu with this knife for years to come, but be sure to protect your denim from any splashes or spills in the kitchen with a proper apron- sold separately.
San Mai constructed with sturdy stainless steel in a Santoku knife design- this blade shape is traditionally best used cutting vegetables, but because of it’s length and (ideally) sharp edge, you’ll find you can perform most kitchen tasks with this knife. Best to keep the steel clean and patted dry after use- and don’t forget to regularly oil the blade and handle.
