Thai Chef's Moon Knife Set of 2
$ 120.00 $ 90.00
This carbon steel Thai knife duo is a must have for creative kitchens. The uniquely shaped, hand-forged knives are made in a Thai village by talented artisans. The lightweight, carbon steel Moon Knife is traditionally used to cut pork in meat markets, but is also perfect for hard-skinned fruits thanks to the rounded shape which allows for a longer cut. The straight edged Slice Knife combines duties of both a chef's knife and a cleaver for precision tasks like mincing and paper-thin slicing.
Made in Thailand
"200 years of making knives has been passed down through the generations so that today, we have the fruits of this tradition through our Thai Moon Knife. Each of our Thai Moon Knives is made of carbon steel, cut and sharpened to traditional standards. This chef's knife was traditionally used for cutting pork in the markets; it even cuts through bone. It’s a dream for cutting through meat and bone, as well as hard-skinned fruit (like watermelon). Each knife comes in its own custom bamboo case.
A knife so sharp
The lightweight, carbon steel Moon Knife (named for its round shape) allows for a longer cut. Its light, thin blade makes it ideal for preparing coconut, watermelon, hard-skinned fruits - and, all meat.
Meet our Blacksmiths
About 200 years ago, blacksmiths made beautiful, intricate swords for the Thai-Burma war. They passed down their craft in making chefs knives. Today, a whole community is involved in a different part of the steel forging process! Families form co-operatives and have skilled workers dedicated to forging, grinding, stamping, woodwork, and finishing."
