About this product

“The perfect knife for getting started and teaching junior chefs the art of Japanese cookery.”

Tim Mälzer and the Japanese knife specialist kai have worked together to develop a unique junior knife that makes it easier for children aged 6 and above to learn how to use professional food preparation equipment. The anti-slip, ergonomic handle means that small hands can securely grip the junior knife.

The anti-rust stainless steel blade is serrated to support the intuitive cutting motion children use (= sawing action), to minimise the force needed and the risk of slipping. To reduce the risk of injury, the knife blade also has a specially rounded, blunt tip and a blunt end. The flexible finger protection supplied as part of the Junior Kitchen Knife Set provides maximum protection.

Designed and produced by kai Japan.
