CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZES FOR A KITCHEN KNIFE SET
When selecting the knives for the Kiksumi 3 kitchen knife set we looked to the wisdom of both Japanese and Western chefs. We wanted to offer a set that would be complete in itself for all levels of cooks. We noted the differences between professional kitchen requirements and the needs of a home cook. Our first selection was a 7″ (17.5 cm) Chef knife for its ability to handle a variety of large cutting jobs. Second, we chose a 3″ (7.5 cm) Paring knife for its amazing dexterity when working in small and tight areas. The final choice was a 5″ (4.8 cm) Santoku knife, an all-purpose knife with a deeper blade for slicing, dicing and mincing round or cylindrical fruits and vegetables.
Once we had the right mix of knives we went to work on packaging it in a way that would tell the compelling story of the Kikusumi brand. The result is 3-knife set gift box whose story unfolds as it is opened – the memorable unwrapping experience is sure to enhance those important moments in life we choose to celebrate. We took extra time to design the hidden details with the hope that it will inspire your cooking creativity to ever greater heights.
