This Spyderco Z-Cut K14SBK utility knife has an edge with double serrations. This means that the knife has both wide and narrow serrations. Ideal for slicing a tomato or a small loaf of bread. Because the wider serrations don't wear out as fast as the narrow, pointed serrations, the knife does not need to be sharpened as often. A unique feature, which any Spyderco enthusiast will immediately recognize.
Flexible blade made from CTS-BD1N steel
The blade is made from CTS-BD1N steel. This is a stainless type of steel that retains its sharpness well and has a high hardness of around 60 HRC. The blade is only 0.6 mm thick and therefore quite flexible. Ideal for precise, fine and small tasks in the kitchen!
Spyder hole: recognizable and functional!
In addition, the blade has been enhanced with the recognizable spyder hole, the hole that serves as an opening mechanism for Spyderco pocket knives. In the case of this utility knife, it will first and foremost be a stylistic characteristic that is typical for Spyderco.
The handle of this specially designed utility knife is made from polypropylene. This is a type of plastic that can handle quite a lot. Partly because of the material of the handle, you can also just put this utility knife in the dishwasher! The handle is quite a bit raised compared to other utility knives. The advantage of a raised handle is that your fingers don't touch the table as you use the knife!
Spyderco has a specially shaped sharpening rod for sharpening double serrated knives, namely the..: Spyderco 400F1SP ceramic slip stone fine.
