Wenoka Squeeze -melontaveitsi

Friday, 19 May 2017 15:37
Wenoka Squeeze ruostumaton melontaveitsi on turvallisin ja parhaiten toimiva veitsi jota Aavameri on löytänyt merimelontaan. Erittäin hyvä hinta yhdessä upean toimivuuden kanssa sai meitä valitsemaan tätä veistä kauppaamme. Nimensä mukaisesti Wenoka Sueeze irtoaa tupestaan kahvan molemmista sivuista kevyesti samanaikaisesti puristamalla. Tarvittava tuplapainallus onnistuu helposti yhdellä kädellä, mutta takaa sen, ettei veitsi irtoa vahingossa. Veitsen kanssa tulee erilaisia kiinnitysruuveja ja solkeja joilla veistä saa helposti kiinni esimerkiksi melontaliiviin. Teräs sekä kaikki veitsen osat ovat ruostumattomia. Aavameri on käyttänyt tätä veistä melkein kymmenen vuotta ja Wenoka Squeeze on ainoa veitsi melontakäyttöön, joka ei ole meille koskaan tuottanut pettymystä.
