About the Spyderco Z-Cut Kitchen Knife with Pointed Tip Blade and Lightweight Yellow Handle – Plain Edge – K14PYL
The pointed version of Spyderco’s Z-Cut knife combines all the advantages of an offset design with an acute point that is perfect for detailed cutting tasks. Easily recognizable by their Z-shaped profiles, offset knives are unique because their handles are above the level of the blade instead of in line with it. Like a classic chef’s knife, this aligns the blade’s edge with the finger knuckles while providing ample clearance for them when working on a cutting board. Unlike a chef’s knife, however, offset knives are much smaller, lighter, and much more versatile.
The USA-Made Z-Cut series of knives elevates the time-tested concept of the “offset” knife to all-new levels of quality and performance. Their highly refined ergonomics, state-of-the-art CTS BD1N blade steel, and scientifically optimized blade geometry offer an unparalleled cutting experience and will quickly make them your favorite “go-to” knives for all food preparation chores. Each version of the Z-Cut is available in black, red, yellow or green handles, as well as both PlainEdge and SpyderEdge configurations.
