Seki Magoroku Redwood is a series of chef’s knives with a robust stainless steel quality and typically Japanese features. With its highly polished blades, the series includes both single-edged and double-edged blades that share the common denominators of stable and well-balanced functionality as well as sharpness. The design combines a minimalist shape with traditional Japanese aesthetics. The name stems from the redwood timber used to make the inserted handle. This hardwood has a naturally high oil content and is particularly moisture resistant.
The small all-purpose knife that is known as the paring knife gets its name from its function. Pairing is defined as cutting away the outer surface and to removing the ends from either fruit or vegetables. Used for the preparation of fruit or vegetables in meals, other functions include the removal of cores, precision peeling, removing seeds to trimming meats.
