A Premium Design

If there’s one thing that Zelite Infinity has perfected, it would have to be the design.

Their utility knife comes with their signature Tsunami Rose Damascus pattern along the blade.

When it gets hit by light at the right angle, the blade will stun anyone who looks at it.

To add to that is an amazingly crafted, triple-riveted, “humpback” handle that one can only find with Zelite Infinity knives.

The tapered bolster makes the knife‘s silhouette look incredibly beautiful while also making it incredibly balanced and comfortable.

Comfort and Functionality

Zelite Infinity Utility Knife review

While the handle’s shape definitely looks good, it also fits perfectly in the hand, to make kitchen tasks a joy to do.

The innovative “humpback” design came into fruition by consulting numerous experts and physicians to make the most comfortable handle imaginable.

The handle is composed of 27 different pieces to ensure durability and comfort when using, which would be needed to help balance the knife because it’s full-tang.

Full tang means that the blade runs throughout the entire knife, all the way to the tip of the handle.

This gives the blade more weight, durability, and balance to help you do whatever kitchen task you need.

Incredibly Durable

From blade to handle, every piece is designed to stand the test of time.

For starters, it uses 45 layers of Japanese super steel, which is known for being super sharp, while also being incredibly strong and rust-resistant.

It would also go without saying that the handle is as durable as it is comfortable.

The handle is made of military-grade G10, a combination of glass and resin, and is known for being one of the toughest materials in the world, giving us all the more reason to love this product.

Maximum Sharpness

By using only the most premium materials to construct the blade, Zelite was able to sharpen it to an incredibly fine angle of 12 degrees, which compared to most other knives that are sharpened to only 15 degrees, is much sharper.

The reason that it can be sharpened to a point that fine is because of the multiple layers of durable hard steel that go into the construction.

This sharpness really comes in handy when performing tasks usually done with utility knives.


Utility knives are one of the most versatile kitchen blades to have.

Serving as the perfect middle ground between a paring and chef’s knife, a utility knife can be used to slice medium-sized vegetables, cheeses, different types of meat, sandwiches, and basically anything too small of a chef’s knife.

This is why quality utility knives are always sought after, and not a lot can make one better than Zelite Infinity.
