Asian knives are kitchen tools that tend to be lighter, as they are designed primarily to cut seafood and less fibrous vegetables. There are many types of Asian knives, like a usuba that produces paper thin cuts, a Peking duck and fruit knife that has an angular design that slices a variety of fruits, a sashimi knife for everyday slicing and dicing, a deba knife to cut through fish, meat, and hard vegetables, etc. They are made of stainless steel that is built to last, and may or may not come with a full tang. Their handles are made from materials like polypropylene, stainless steel, and wood, to meet your preference. Their blade lengths come in various lengths as well. They are offered in a range of prices to satisfy any budget. These, and other kitchen essentials like knife sharpeners, custom knives, paring knives, santoku knives, ceramic knives, kitchen knives, knife sets, and electric knives are available at restaurant supply stores.
