These are the best traditional knives a professional chef can own. Honyaki is the highest quality knife that Kikuichi offers. The entire blade is hand forged in the traditional Honyaki sword making tradition from only the best single piece of Shirogami (White #2) high-carbon steel. Then, the blade is differentially heat treated creating a Mount Fuji & Moon design in the Hamon line. These are top of the line knives for professional use. This Kiritsuke is multipurpose and offers versatile cutting applications making prep quick. The clipped tip drops the point which allows for precision when imparting a drag cutting technique.
NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
