Follow Up: Kiwi Knives (pic)

Back in January I wrote about my discovery of Kiwi knives from Thailand.
Well, I've been using them diligently for a little more than two months, so I
thought I'd post a follow up.





In the original post I described them as "like razor blades with handles",
and they are definitely that. I've found that, with regular maintenance from
a steel, they hold an edge amazingly well for such a thin blade.

As I mentioned in my discussion on the BBQ Central Radio podcast, these
knives are serious prep machines. The thin, light, and flexible blades make
prep work all but effortless. In fact, I often find myself reaching for them
rather than my Global or Wusthof knives. They are just a joy to use.

At two months in, I can say that you really can't go wrong with these;
especially at such an insanely low price.

FYI - Plastic-handled versions can be had here. I have no experience with the vendor.

Re: Follow Up: Kiwi Knives (pic)

I ordered $22.50 worth. They were here in two or three day. Very fast. I used the pairing knife to trim three racks of spares down to St. Louis. Washed it. Hit it with a steel. Checked for sharpness. Good.

The one thing that is impressive is that I cannot use a steel for #@$#. I might as well run the edge if the knife over the edge of my tailgate.
