Looking for knives is a difficult task unless you already know what you really need. Most of the time, however, we just browse through different brands and types of knives until we land on something we feel we would like. If you're that type of person, here are a few knives for sale Australia to get you started on your search.
This knife looks like a meat cleaver, but don't let it fool you! Unlike a meat cleaver, the Chinese vegetable knife has an extremely thin blade and a very finely polished cutting edge. This, plus the broad blade, makes it ideal to cut vegetables of all shapes and sizes, and even fruits, with relative ease.
This particular knife series features high-quality stainless steel alloy for corrosion resistance, strength, and long edge retention.
The weight of the blade and handle are evenly distributed to create a perfect balance and provide a great cutting experience. The handle is made of non-slip material, and a bolster between the handle and the blade gives the fingers extra protection.
Made in the knife making center of Germany, these knives exude sophistication, quality, and great design. Carl Schmidt has perfected the art of working steel since 1829, and their products are ideal for both home and professional use.
Drawing on the experience of more than 100 years, they understand perfectly the needs of both home and professional cooks and they design their cutlery to meet them.
The knives are forged from a single piece of steel, which makes them strong and durable. They're made from stainless steel which is stain and corrosion-resistant.
They feature an ergonomic ABS handle, which provides strength and balance as you cut.
A steak knife is a pointed knife with a serrated edge used to cut steak at the table. While other table knives go dull easily because they have a straight edge, the steak knife has a serrated edge, so it retains its edge for a long time. The serrations make it easier to cut through cooked steak cleanly, without ripping it and letting all the juices out.
This knife resembles a Japanese sword blade, which evokes the nostalgia and beauty of the famous sword-making tradition of Japan. A good blade needs a hardcore for durability and toughness. This steak knife features a VG10 steel core sandwiched between layers of hard and soft steel which form the typical Damascus pattern that makes Japanese knives so unique.
The handle is made of natural wood strengthened with fiber and laminated material and finished to perfection by the wood carving factory Marunao, a partner of Tojiro. It is well designed to fit comfortably into your hand to make your steak experience enjoyable.
Tsubame, the hometown of Tojiro in Japan, means swallow in Japanese. The knives in this set live up to their names with their resemblance to a swallow just about to take flight.
The blade is typical of Japanese knives-made of VG10 Damascus steel with its characteristic swirling patterns, strength, and razor-sharp edge.
The knife handles are made from a combination of natural wood, fiber, and Micarta to give a solid, water-resistant material.
One of the most common knives for sale Australia is the chef's knife. It's a multipurpose knife that's used to chop and slice meat, prepare vegetables and even chop small bones.
The Furi Pro Powerhouse Chef Knife is longer than most similar knives, which gives it an advantage over them. It features stain and corrosion-resistant Japanese stainless steel.
Furi is big on innovation, and one unique thing about their knives is how friendly they are to the hands. Their revolutionary reverse wedge shaped handles are comfortable to hold and easy to work with. The handle is also made of stainless steel, and the seamless transition between the handle and the blade promotes hygiene, as there are no crevices and cracks to trap bits of food.
There's nothing worse than trying to cut bread and have it literally bend out of shape and break into shapeless, unattractive pieces with jagged edges. A good bread knife will prevent this. This bread knife has an edge with wavy serrations, which allows you to cut bread while leaving very few crumbs. The knife makes clean, straight cuts and doesn't leave the bread with uneven edges.
The blade has a matte finishing and is coated with titanium to increase its resistance to corrosion. It consists of three layers of stainless steel- a hard VG10 core sandwiched between 2 flexible steel layers. This guarantees flexibility while still maintaining some level of toughness.
The handle is made of black Pakkawood, a composite of natural wood and artificial resin that is more corrosion-resistant than plain natural wood. The handle is also shaped in the traditional Japanese chestnut style to fit comfortably in the hand.
The sausage knife is very similar to a bread knife. Both have serrated edges, and both are designed to cut foods that are hard on the outside and soft on the inside such as salami, cheese, bagels, tomatoes, rolls, and of course, sausages. The serrated edge allows the knife to cut cleanly without tearing.
It remains sharp for a long because of its serrated edge and is easy to maintain. The knife is also made of special alloy steel, which is both corrosion and stain-resistant.
The knife features a bolster which provides additional protection to the fingers when cutting and also improves balance by distributing weight evenly. The handle is firmly attached to the blade with rivets for extra strength.
If you're looking for knives for sale Australia, these are just the tip of the iceberg. Keep looking, and you'll find lots and lots of brands with varying features and styles, but one thing in common - high quality.
