ZHEN for your kitchen
Zhen is a Chinese word that means ‘to achieve utmost perfection’. Preparing meals with a blunt knife or the wrong type of knife can be a frustrating experience. Instead you can slice, dice and mince to perfection using the Zhen Santoku. With one gliding motion, this knife can slice straight through meat, fruit or vegetables, with minimal effort from you.
Perfection is in the Details:
Exceptional Sharpness –This blade glides through with minimal effort. Slice or chop with ease and precision.
Razor Edge Retention - Exclusive heat-treated technology to achieve HRC 60-62 makes our knife blades extremely sharp for a long time.
ZHEN VG-10 3-Layer Forged Steel Knife - The blade is made of 3 layers Japanese forged steel including a VG-10 steel cutting core for exceptional strength, durability, and stain resistance.
Full Tang Handle -The full tang, triple rivet handle comes in brown pakkawood that is non-slip, bacteria resistant, easy to clean, and waterproof.
*DO NOT use to chop bones or use on glass, tile, or granite cutting boards.
Hand wash with gentle dish soap, rinse, and dry immediately. We recommend sharpening ZHEN knives on a whetstone at a 15-degree angle.
ZHEN VG-10 3-Layer Forged steel is forged in Japan and then imported to Taiwan where it is shaped, sharpened, and finished.
