KastKing has expanded its bounds into kitchens everywhere with KastKing Spartacus Field to Kitchen professional grade chef knives.
May 17, 2021 – Garden City, Long Island NY) Already experienced in knife manufacturing and with a successful series of fillet knives and fishing knives, KastKing (kastking.com) has grown the line to include professional chef level kitchen knives at an affordable price. The new KastKing Spartacus Field to Kitchen knives feature razor-sharp 8Cr14 stainless-steel knife blades for performance and durability. The kitchen knife series includes a 3.5” paring knife, a 8” chef knife, and a 12” carving/ slicing knife.
KastKing Spartacus Field to Kitchen 8Cr14 stainless-steel knife blades have a high carbon content and a HRC of 56-59 for longer edge sharpness retention, and a higher chromium content for increased corrosion resistance. They maintain their edge longer but are easy to sharpen between uses.
For easier and faster cutting, carving, and slicing, and to reduce hand fatigue during large meal preparation these KastKing blades features a hollow ground edge with vertical indentations to improve workflow. These oval indentations reduce friction and drag by creating an air space between the blade and the food that allows the blade to slide with less effort.
KastKing chose Kraton G Polymers for the handle material for added durability and comfort. Kraton G Polymers are UV resistant and perform well in higher service temperatures. The KastKing Spartacus Field to Kitchen knife handle’s smooth surface doesn’t stain and cleans easily when done. Although, like all fine knives, the manufacturer recommends hand-washing.
“Yes, KastKing Spartacus Field to Kitchen knives is a new direction for the brand,” says KastKing CMO, Tom Gahan. “But, it’s a direction drawn on from our experience. Over the years KastKing customers have always been impressed with the quality and sharpness of our bestselling bait knives, fillet knives, and niche knives such as the KastKing folding fillet knife and tools. The chef knife series was a logical step.
“We wanted to create a kitchen knife series that is on par with, or better than, top knife brands for kitchen use at far more affordable price. These have been in development for quite some time. The wait was worth it.”
KastKing has always enjoyed a reputation of producing extremely sharp knives. Although KastKing Spartacus Field to Kitchen knives were developed in the outdoors and through fishing experiences, they are designed for the professional kitchen and discerning chefs. Their core was specifically designed to perform during hard use in the home or commercial kitchen.
KastKing Spartacus Field to Kitchen knives are available individually at Amazon.com and have MSRPs of $19.99 for the 3.5” paring knife, $25.99 for the 8” chef knife, and $29.99 for the 12” carving knife.
