In collaboration with Tim Mälzer, kai has developed a special Junior chef's knife, designed to aid children aged 6 and older to handle knives safely when cooking
collaboratively. Children imitate cutting intuitively with a kind of sawing movement. On this basis, the stainless steel blade of the Junior chef's knife has been equipped with a finely serrated edge, designed to minimize the amount of effort and risk of slipping during usage. In addition to this, the blade has a rounded, blunt tip to further reduce risk of injury. Due to the non-slip and ergonomic plastic handle, the Junior chef's knife is safe in smaller hands. The Junior chef's knife
comes with a flexible finger protector for maximum protection. The Tim Mälzer
Junior chef's knife was awarded the Red Dot Design Award in 2012.
