Handle Materials

Kai Housewares knife handles are designed for comfort and cutting control, as well as ease of use and care.

POM

Polyoxymethylene (POM) is a thermoplastic known for its high strength, stiffness, and hardness. They are excellent for applications that require tight tolerances, such as the NSF-Certified Kai PRO series.

Polypropylene

Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer that is rugged, resistant to organic solvents, and has excellent molding capabilities. It is economical, durable, and recyclable.

Polypropylene with soft-grip

Handles made with this material offers all the advantages of polypropylene, but also have a “rubberized” insert that provides a softer grip and additional grip security in wet conditions.

Pakkawood

Seki Magoroku 10,000 series handles are PakkaWood®, a premium handle material made of genuine hardwood impregnated with resin. The resin makes it moisture resistant, strong, and durable—important for kitchen knives. Sanding and buffing brings PakkaWood to a beautiful gloss finish. As with natural wood, no two pieces of PakkaWood are exactly alike.
