Upgrading our Apple products is something we do regularly, but how often do you upgrade your kitchen knives? If you can’t remember the last time you gave your cooking tools an overhaul, it may be time to find a new, high-quality tool that can do it all.

With this Japanese chef’s knife, you can put a multi-use tool in your rack for all your slicing and dicing. And it’s now on sale for just $79.99 (a 73% discount).

A multi-tool for your kitchen

Every knife starts with the blade, and the Sakana Korouchie Chef Knife stands out. Imported from Japan, its core is made of ultra-premium Japanese VG-10 stainless steel with a composition of 1% carbon, 1% molybdenum, 15% chromium, 0.2% vanadium and 1.5% cobalt. It consists of 37 layers of steel cladding to protect the blade, and fight stains and rust. Plus, each blade is cooled with nitrogen for enhanced hardness, flexibility and resistance to corrosion.

This form of stainless steel proves popular in kitchens because it keeps an edge and is extremely durable, making it the gold standard for Japanese cutlery. The edge is cut to a 15-degree angle for super-precise control when you slice.

All this means you get a sharp blade that can prep meal after meal and remain sharp. The blade design caters to a wide range of chopping and slicing techniques. And Sakana Korouchie’s 9-inch blade also means you can tackle anything from delicate vegetables to thick roasts with ease.

Enjoy an elegant and comfortable design

Made from ebony and rosewood, the handle also packs a punch with its attractive style. decorative touch is found near the handle, which features an attractive pattern reflecting the knife’s roots in Japanese bladecraft.

These premium materials combine to make the knife both gorgeous and durable, no matter how much chopping you’re doing at the cutting board.
