SK-4 high-carbon steel, a favorite among professional chefs worldwide, is prized for its lightweight nature, easy sharpening, and the exceptional keen edge derived from its fine grain structure. Gohumanosuke's skilled blade-smiths expertly apply Sakai's traditional quenching techniques and precise sharpening to craft a blade with enduring sharpness. This tough and sharp SK-4 High-Carbon steel, a mainstay in the knife industry for centuries, maintains a super sharp edge and is easily sharpened at home.

A Càidāo, 菜刀, translating from Chinese into English as Kitchen Knife or Vegetable Knife. This Chinese-style Chef's Knife shares the versatility of Chefs Knives and Gyutos, excelling in chopping, slicing, dicing, and mincing tasks. The tall profile adds utility, making it ideal for scooping, while the heft allows for the spine to be used for meat tenderization. Not to be confused with a meat cleaver, the thinner blade is not designed for heavy strikes on bone. The full tang rosewood handle completes the picture, offering comfort, durability, and toughness to enhance your culinary experience.
