Zenith Knives, a series of professional kitchen knives, including a paring knife, chef’s knife, and Santoku knife, is the first crowdfunding campaign to come from Entrepreneur Vicky Simson. The Kickstarter campaign for Zenith Knives just launched late last week and in just 3 days has already surpassed its funding goal of $3,675.
Zenith Knives’ main focus is performance, so it can become the most trusted utensil the kitchen. The knives are lightweight, well balanced and ultrasharp. The handle of the Zenith Knife is made from pakka wood for the ultimate grip that works along with the ergonomically shaped handle. The series of knives are the perfect multi-purpose knives that people can use throughout their meal prepping process.
The Zenith Knife series includes four different knives. The Zenith Paring Knife is mainly used for chopping and peeling fruits and vegetables. The Zenith Chef’s Knife is a general-utility knife with the main purpose of slicing and cutting meat. Zenith has two different Santoku knives where Santoku translates into “three uses,” which refers to the three types of cutting operations the knife is best used for: slicing, dicing, and mincing. There is also a Santoku knife that comes with hollow edges to prevent food from sticking to the knife while cutting.
“Knives are probably one of the most used kitchen utensils, and having a really nice, quality chef knife or paring knife has almost become a luxury because of the high price tags on them,” said Vicky Simson, Founder of Samurai King. “We wanted to make a beautiful knife that was designed to last but wouldn’t hurt your pocket. We came up with Samurai King to create an affordable knife with the same quality that chefs around the world are using so that everyone could become a pro in the kitchen.”
A dull knife can be more dangerous than a sharp knife, which is why Zenith Knives are made with only the highest-grade steel to retain sharpness longer. Other knives require constant sharpening, which can cause the blade to become thin and weak. Zenith Knives use Japanese AUS-08 steel with a Rockwell hardness of 59-60 HRC to ensure consistent performance each time without becoming brittle. The knife core is sandwiched between 66 layers of Damascus stainless steel, giving it strength, corrosion resistance and a remarkable design.
Zenith Knives are currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter. Early adopters can get a Zenith Paring Knife for $30, a Chef’s Knife, the Santoku Knife, or the Santoku Knife with hollow edges for $61. To learn more, visit bit.ly/ZenithKS.
