For your information, most of the Japanese Kitchen knives come originally with double bevel edge sharpened 70/30 (face side/back side) for Western style knives. This geometry came from Japanese Traditional knives with single bevel edge and Shinogi blade construction. This is one of the special features and reasons why Japanese knives have an excellent cutting performance.
However, this 70/30 edge geometry is designed for right hand use, so we have a service to modify it to 30/70 for left handed users with re-sharpening process by skilled craftsman.
We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
Nice cleaver, feels good in the hand. Out of the box sharpness could be improved but maybe I'm too demanding. Very reactive, forms a patina quickly.
I am very pleased with this knife and the traditional look and feel of the components. The 7 inch blade is a bit shorter than some, but is the perfect length for my kitchen use in preparing Chinese and other meals. Carbon steel and rosewood, made in Japan, and incredibly sharp out of the box, what more could I ask for?
Quick shipping. Great….no, super packaging. Well balanced, handsome, SHARP as ****, handles like a dream, re-sharpens easily, and really looks cool ! Oh, and the price was so very reasonable. The follow up service from the Company was way beyond what I would ever have expected. Sent me an email to make sure I was satisfied, and wanted to know if I had any concerns/problems. You would think I bought a million-dollar knife ! Also, quickly received an answer about the correct sharpening method, and it was very detailed and concise. Can’t believe the great customer service department for these folks. Yes, I’ll probably buy another knife from them when the need arises. Check them out if you are a knife-guy like myself.
Knife performs exactly as advertised. I love the natural patina that a real carbon steel knife develops and the left handed grind is a much appreciated option. Take care of it and it will take care of you.
This cleaver has incredible feel and it is a joy to use.
