         Kanetsugu Hybrid Wa-Bocho Series

  Many people know the great cutting performance of Single Bevel Edge Japanese Traditional Style knives called “Wa-Bocho”. Recently Japanese foods (Sushi) are getting well known and more popular in all over the world.  Great sharpness, yet detailed and precise cutting performance of Japanese Traditional style knives are necessary tools for preparing fresh Sashimi, Sushi.

  We have been introducing Japan’s top brands Wa-Bocho of Masamoto and Mizuno Tanrenjo. They are the ones which we can recommend for professional users with confidence, backed by ancient method of Japanese Sword-making tradition and soul..

  Most of Japanese Traditional style knives are made of Carbon steel materials, that requires extra cares and maintenance. We have been looking for the Stainless steel Wa-Bocho that are reasonable price and easy maintenance for the first and beginning users, and here are the new Kanetsugu Wa-Bocho line that fits perfectly for the demands.

  Single Bevel Edge with a slightly concaved flat back, solid High Carbon Molybdenum Vanadium Stainless steel blade is hand sharpened with Japanese whetstone for excellent cutting performance. 

  As we see in the market, Magnolia Wood Handle with Water buffalo horn bolster is the common and standard handle material for Japanese Traditional style knives. Mr. Kawamura has been researching and challenged for different material, construction and design for extra advantages. The full blade tang is injection molded with dark blue heat-resistant ABS resin bolster/butt-end and silver anodized aluminum grip to prevent water getting into the handle for sanitary and rust resistance. The septangle shaped handle is also very unique and comfortable in your handle. When you look and hold the knife, you will feel a totally different texture and atmosphere.     

  For those who will start learning Japanese Food cooking, and are considering to own first Japanese Traditional style knives, or looking for something different design and materials with the extra advantages, we recommend this innovative design, yet considered for practical use and great cutting performance of Kanetsugu Japanese Traditional style knives.
