Yin and Yang are opposite and complementary forces. Spyderco style, that transforms into two kitchen knives with contrasting features. Used in conjunction they cover an array of food preparation needs. The Yang kitchen knife with its blonde Birch-wood handle has a PlainEdge blade takes a fine, razor-thin edge and sharpens keenly so food rolls away from the cutting edge allowing fruits, vegetables and meat to be carved thinly. The wooden handle is double riveted for solid/tight handle-to-blade connection and it generously tapers wide at the back so there is more handle surface to grip. The blade is high-carbon VG-10, flat-ground from heel to tip and feature a -+ length tang. Hand washing is recommended.[1]
