1. Kyocera Ceramic Knives (meat and fish cutting knife)

In the market today, there are predominantly regular steel and stainless steel blades. However, they can be easily worn out and become very hard to chop meat. Hence, Kyocera has produced the ceramic knives which are super long-lasting and sharp. Mainly, they don’t influence the natural taste of food while processing food.
This is a specialized chef knife with the primary functions such as cutting, chopping, slicing fish and meat (including the raw and the cooked). For some soft and crushed food product like tomatoes or beefsteak, using Kyocera knife will make it done easier than ever.

Materials: The knife edge is made of advanced sharp ceramic. Since ceramic is imperviable to acids, oils, and salts, the blades will never rust. Also, constituent elements of advanced ceramics were formed naturally over thousands of years, underwent crystallization under high temperature and high pressure. Thus, its hardness is the second only after the diamond.
Food hygiene safety: The Kyocera is inert in the chemical aspect so that it won’t affect the food’s appearance and taste. Furthermore, the Kyocera advanced ceramic knife is easy to sanitize. You just need to clean it with water, then leave it dry.
Notes: Avoid using this knife for cutting some food products which have a thick peel like pumpkins, pineapples, ribs, frozen meat or cheese. Wash it by hands, not by a dishwasher.

2. Leatherman Crater C33X (multifunctional knife)

This knife brand was originally from the USA, but it has become very successful when being released in the Japanese market. And nowadays, Leatherman’s knives are always on top of the best-selling knives of the world. This is a multipurpose knife, so you can use it to sharpen fruit, cut paper, or defend yourself.
Superior material: To ensure the best quality, the Leatherman company uses premium qualified 420 HC steel to make the blade. You will probably be surprised about the knife’s capability.

Moreover, the plastic knife handle assists you to hold it in a comfortable and safe way, as well as avoid getting tired when using it for a long time.
Notes: When sanitizing the knife, you should use a piece of tinder to clean the dust of the last session. You must not soak the knife in water; otherwise, the blade will get loosened.

3. NAKIRI (vegetables & fruits knife)

Today, besides the knife dedicated to chopping and cutting meat and fish, there is also a type of knife which are used only for slicing, mincing fruits and vegetables. The Nakiri is considered to be the best Japanese knife specialized for vegetables and fruits in the recent market due to its dominant capabilities.
Prominent design: The 35 layers not only make the blade beautifully appealing, but add durable strength, thus making a thinner, yet stronger, and therefore sharper edge. The central core of the 35 layer JKC steel is a high-carbon steel known as VG10. This high-carbon steel has the highest recommendations in the production of knives by authorities such as the British Steel Confederation.


The efficient traditional handles embrace the black Pakkawood, a boarded hardwood with silicon atomization, which is reserved for only the finest knives and supreme durability.

How to Start an Adventure Travel Company

My neighbor is an avid traveler. On one of his recent jaunts, he was inspired by the person running the travel company in which he had booked his trip. He wanted to start a similar company, so he asked my guidance on making it possible.  He had thought that arranging trips for others had various benefits.

He could see to the intricate details involved as he was an experienced traveler himself and having knowledge about the various aspects that can go wrong during travel would help him to avoid the pitfalls easily. He wanted to know more about the business aspect, so he had approached me. Here are some tips on starting a travel company.

Operating a travel company can be done from an office or in a home based set up too. The important thing here is the success depends on how strong the economy is. Since it is dependent on the economy, just like the share market, you can experience highs and lows.

First look at the capital you would need. If you don’t have the sufficient capital, consider operating from home, until you are established. This will help in reducing the overhead costs. Setting up at home is easy. All you need is a stable internet connection, access to all the major airline schedules, travel packages and tourist spots. You can easily make the travel arrangement over email or phone. If you are focusing on corporate level of travel, you need a separate office to give a professional look.

A major percentage of travel worldwide is made up of leisure travel with corporate travel making up for the rest. So leisure travel industry offers you a better opportunity. You can develop a particular niche like adventure travel, where you arrange for hiking trips, diving, snorkeling and other adventure travel trips. You can see to the needed accessories and provide the hiking gear, diving masks, skis etc. needed so you carve a name for yourself in your niche. This will bring in more clients from referrals alone. There are other possibilities to ponder upon like trips for a particular destination, trips for seniors etc.

Buying a travel franchise is a good way to start, if you are just starting in the industry or starting a business for the first time. This will give you an already proven model and a brand that helps reducing the risks present.

Registration is required in some states for starting a travel company. You need to pay a particular amount and get a bond. You can contact the business licensing office of your state and find the eligibility requirements present in your state.

Certification is another area, which helps to make your services look authentic and reputable. Professional certification also establishes you as a professional in travel and gives you an added advantage over your competitors who do not have certification.

Planning a trip, whether for leisure or business purpose, is time consuming and overwhelming. You need to look into various factors from arranging transport to finding the best place to stay and the best food. A travel company that can make all the arrangements and get good deals too would certainly be welcome and make good profits, if you are well prepared and dedicated to the work.
