The knife is one of mankind‘s oldest and most important tools. It consists of two parts or rather two sections, the blade and the handle. The style of the knife is an expression of culture and epoch, – its uses are highly specialized. The Japanese santoku bōchō, is translated as ‘knife of the three virtues’. The blade is designed for universal kitchen use – fish, meat, and vegetables.
This blade was the inspiration for KAZUMA. The handle is reinterpreted. While gripping, the inside of the hand divides into several surfaces at different angles. The handle is designed to reflect this form and to give as much contact area as possible. The fine-pored handle made of plastic-bonded cement gives the user a solid grip.
