A household knife completely hand wrought by swordsmiths. With my own two feet, I sought the most ancient kitchen knife remaining in Japan, which inspired me to design and produce it. Part of the material used is a steel called "Shirogami No. 1" (White Sheet No. 1), and it is designed so that if you can learn how to make this knife, such as how to heat and shape the steel, you can also learn the the fundamental techniques of swordmaking at the same time. It is the kind of knife that can be used by your descendants three generations hence, until it is sharpened down to a nub. In this age of disposable tools, such a knife is a great reminder of the tradition of using tools with care.
It fits to cut meat and fish.
The length of a blade : about 21cm (8.27inch)
Handle : about 13.5 cm (5.31inch)
