Kiwi knives?

jakesnake Jan 29, 2013 02:58 PM

Anyone know where I can find Kiwi knives in the Dallas area? I'm thinking Super H Mart in Carrolton might have them, but I'm near lower Greenville and would appreciate a more local spot. I know there's a Thai supply shop on Sears & Greenville, but I can't remember if they carry tools/accessories. Looking specifically for Kiwis as an inexpensive upgrade from my college Ikea set. Thanks in advance.

    Hong Kong Market on Walnut St., and Audelia Rd. They have all sizes of the Kiwi knives there.

        These knives are very sharp new but most come with slightly burred edge. Refine their cutting edge to razor sharp using a diamond sharpener at 10 to 15 deg. angle and you're ready to shave hair off your arm.

          Picked up a trio this past weekend. Right out of the plastic, these guys are sharp indeed. You were right, there are a few burred sections on the larger knives, but they feel pretty great otherwise. Diced an onion in record time, I'm happy to report. :) Treated the handles with mineral oil, too -- all I need now is a sharpener, sharpening practice and acclimation to these super-thin blades.
