Viper Sakura kitchen knives
These kitchen knives were designed in cooperation with two famous Danish designers: Jens Ansø and Jesper Voxnaes. Together they are responsible for designing, amongst others, pocket knives, bushcraft knives and kitchen knives. Many of these knives were designed in cooperation with knife manufacturers. In this case the popular Italian brand Viper.
The design looks graceful and classic because of the bocote wood handle, the embellishments on the blade and the rivets. The shape of the blade and the steel, however, are far from classic.
The full-tang blade is made from Nitro-B and has a hardness of 59 HRC. This remarkable stainless steel has been alloyed with extra nitrogen by multiple cryogenic treatments. As a result the Nitro-B steel retrieves its hardness from the nitrogen molecules and not from the carbon molecules as is the case with carbon steel. As such the blade is not only remarkably hard, it is also corrosion resistant.
The handle is made from dark bocote wood. The handle is secured with two stunning stainless steel rivets. In addition, in between the blade and the wooden handle you will find a stunning embellishment which leaves the classic design of the knife with an elegant and warm finish.
Viper Tecnocut has been a popular knife manufacturer working from the Italian city of Maniago for over hundred years. They are already known for their excellent hunting and gentleman's knives, but now also offer excellent kitchen knives!
