Orange Flowers

These orange flowers were carved with one orange and one of our razor sharp Paring Knives! A natural air freshener that costs nothing! Chefs Note: Start with a razor sharp paring knife and large Sunkist oranges, medium ripe are the best, carefully cut a circle base out of the top of the orange and continue with a long thin slice of the zest all the way around the orange, taking care not to break it, gradually go thinner to the top and then twist it up! Your first orange flower! Place on a plate and let air dry for several days, they harden in dry weather! Use the knife to carefully off the pith and cut the supreme wedges off the orange.

Chef Notes: These knives are a great choice for Chefs and Gourmet Cooks! We tested several brands of ceramic knives - Here's the results! Kyocera was the only knife sharp enough to meet our demands, the others were too dull or the blades were too thin and brittle.

Kasumi Utility Knife 4.75 in. blade, double bevel

Product # CD82012-KASUMI-UTILITY-NARROW-4.75IN
Retail $110.95 and up
On Sale $97.95

This is a new Kasumi Damascus Narrow Utility Knife with a 4.75 in. blade, it's the sharpest damascus blade made. The edge that it holds is hair splitting and remains throughout heavy use. The non slip ergo handle is very comfortable and virtually indestructible, perfect for every serious Chef. We could not believe how sharp these knives were until we tried each one. Kasumi knives are made from 33 layers of stainless steel in Seki Japan. Kasumi V Gold No. 10 Damascus Knives are crafted from the most advanced materials with the most advanced manufacturing techniques. Only the middle layer acts as the cutting edge, and it is made using V Gold No. 10 stainless steel. Each Kasumi knife blade is a high carbon stainless steel with cobalt, manganese, molybdenum and vanadium for added durability and ease of sharpening. The layers on both sides of the Kasumi knife V Gold No. 10 core are made by repeatedly folding together two different types of stainless steel and forge welding them by hand until you have sixteen exceedingly thin alternating layers. These sixteen layers are then forge welded to both sides of the V Gold No. 10 core. The addition of cobalt to this steel requires special tempering in order to maximize the full benefit of this steel. The technique for this special tempering is a closely guarded secret. Each Kasumi knife (more here) has a laminated pakka wood handle secured with stainless steel rivets. They also have a full tang. The handle is made from multiple layers of wood impregnated with a plastic resin. The handle is riveted to the tang.
Chefs Note: This is the sharpest knife out of the box! Possibly our favorite knife. Comfortable and perfectly balanced. Each knife is carefully finished by the hands of skilled craftsmen. You will love this knife! A beautiful knife that will provide a lifetime of use and the ultimate in performance. Lifetime Warranty. Free Shipping in Cont. USA!
