Product Information
For better or worse, Western knives are often seen as general-purpose kitchen tools, used for cutting, prizing, levering and all sorts of other jobs around the kitchen (and sometimes beyond). Japanese knives should not be viewed this way and it may require a change of mindset to get the best out of your knife and ensure it delivers many years of service. Cared for correctly, this ought to be the case: the quality of the craftsmanship and the ease with which they can be kept incredibly sharp are two of the main reasons to make the switch to Japanese carbon steel, but that comes at a price: the steel is more brittle than you may be used to and they are not for the heavy-handed or the careless. They are unforgiving tools and you may not get an opportunity to make the same mistake twice. A good rule of thumb is to show them the same respect you show your poshest wine glasses.

Cherry wood handle and scabbard. Stainless steel blade.

Blade length 9 cm
