Beautiful blade and black walnut handle with massive presence —
The artistic graceful beauty, achieved by combining the beautiful patterns standing out on the entire blade and the handle featuring the imposing texture and grain provided by black walnut of Canadian origin, attracts people.
The VG-10, a high-end steel material, is adopted for the blade. VG-10 is an ideal steel material that has the advantages of both carbon steel and stainless steel. It is excellent in sharpness like carbon steel, and is highly resistant to rust like stainless steel. Sandwiching the VG-10 by 67 Layered Nickel Damascus steel materials and forging them together has improved its sharpness and strength. The blade has not only long-lasting sharpness, but also beautiful patterns laminated on the entire surfaces.
The one-of-the-kind ripple patterns are a proof of manual forging. This is a fine product that allows users to feel both external beauty and artisans’ expertise.
The shape is basically a small Sujihiki or slicing knife. As the name suggests it is a multi-function knife used for the preparation of vegetables and precise cutting of meat and fish. The slim profile presents a smaller area to fatty, oily, and starchy foods where a wider blade would create a stronger vacuum and ‘stick’ more to the food.
Function – Multipurpose for preparing all food groups. A favourite knife of many home cooks who are uncomfortable with large blades.
Normal length – 150mm
Tip: This knife is also used for carving petite roasts, filleting and skinning fish as well as careful dissection of poultry without hitting bones. An extremely useful size for any kitchen.
