Kiwi Brand Stainless Steel Thai Knives. For years, professional chefs have told us about the Kiwi-brand knives they brought home from Thai vacations, and how much they love using Kiwi knives. Many others call and ask if we carry them.

We have the finest selection of Kiwi knives imported direct from Thailand and offered at a very reasonable price. There's no mystery why chefs love these knives, and that Thai knife designers deserve a reputation equal to the taste of delicious Thai food.

The stainless steel blades are extremely sharp and strong yet light. The hard plastic handle on smaller knives not only feels great, it seems to be aircraft-grade plastic seamlessly molded to the blade for literally decades of use. On the larger knives, the blades are slightly heavier, with hardwood handles and brass rivets. Browse our selection and order with convenience, you no longer need to travel to Thailand to find the finest knives, or pay a fortune for European-style knives. All of these have the prestigious Kiwi Brand Made in Thailand stamp.

Click pictures above to enlarge. We call it the "Machete Cleaver" because our mother from Kanchanaburi, born in the 1940s when things were different, remarked that this cleaver is known as a tool to cut down trees, sugarcane, and any general work that requires a heavy-duty blade.

Machete Cleaver is part of our growing collection of handmade Thai knives, see all of them here.

Tamarind Cutting Board. Here is the best cutting board you'll likely find anywhere. A solid block of end-grain exotic hardwood from a tamarind tree. Tamarind wood is well-known in Thailand as the very best for cutting boards, used to make all Thai recipes. This round slice from the center of a tamarind tree is about 10" in diameter and an impressive 2" thick. The wood is extremely dense, so dense that even 40 grit sandpaper on an industrial belt sander will hardly reduce it, yet gentle on your knife. With end grain wood, especially from the tamarind tree, your knife will stay sharp a lot longer because as it hits the board the grains are straight (like a super-tight brush) rather than sideways. You will find Thai tamarind cutting boards only at ImportFood.com.

What makes this cutting board so special? Typically, cutting boards use flat planks of cross-cut wood, which makes your knife blade go dull quickly. End-grain wood is superior, and end-grain butcher blocks sell for a high price but those are made of little blocks glued together. For generations in Thailand, cooks have always used the wood of solid tamarind tree because it's the perfect material. Indeed, customers have noted from our street vendor photo and our street vendor video series that all chefs are using the same style of cutting board. We are happy to introduce this to you.
