Overview
The Sikyo: First Tool for Any Chef For the better part of 25 years, Chris has been mulling over designs of kitchen knives. At last we see the range of chef's knives known as Sikayo. They showcase Chris's out-of-the-box ideas, incorporating concepts in the style of Japanese Sushi knives, countered with modern lines and state-of-the-art materials. As much as the word Sikayo might have a Japanese sound, it is the Zulu word for "sharp"! The cutting edge of the Sikayo is exceptional and truly lives up to the name. The broad blade is ground only on one side for exceptional slicing; the cutting edge has a good curve that allows cutting with minimal pressure; the curve also facilitates "rocking" dicing of vegetables and herbs. The handles are made from UItem1000® (a particularly durable plastic, capable of withstanding extreme temperatures). The handle slab on side against your palm is thicker than the other side, offering a comfortable hold without pressure; the full tang and the grooves in the UItem® give excellent radial grip. This knife is dedicated right handed. Comes with original box and papers dated February 25, 2016. Excellent condition.

ABOUT THE MAKER
Reeve, Chris
Chris Reeve Knives began operations on January 1, 1984, in a one-car garage in Durban, South Africa, when Chris moved from full-time Tool and Die Maker/part time knife maker to full-time knife maker. For a couple years he was the only employee but gradually and steadily, the company has grown to reach its present position as a well equipped manufacturing company and a noted brand in the industry. The road between 1984 and today has not always been smooth. For many years, the endeavor was under-funded but with determination, Chris and Anne put all they had into producing the best knives possible, within the resources available. In March 1989, they moved from their native South Africa and settled in Boise, Idaho. That move in itself was a major undertaking but vital for the future of the company. Chris has always "pushed the envelope". Whether on a motorcycle or behind a belt grinder, he dreamed of being a world champion. He did not win a motorcycle world championship but in many respects, the standing of CRK today represents one. His induction into the Cutlery Hall of Fame in June 2015 could be considered his championship trophy. The single thought in Chris' mind has always been to design every model with deliberation, taking into account how the knife works, its intended purpose and the most appropriate materials. On this foundation, CRK is a vibrant business, has a great staff of well-trained employees, and remains a company with a worldwide reputation for raising the standards bar - "pushing the envelope" - for the industry.
