This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.
For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.
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.
That work knife is necessary in the kitchen. The successful combination of length (relatively short and convenient for knife control) and weight (relatively heavy knife in relation to its length) gives the knife the features for which it was created. The cutting by this knife does not require effort during operation because it is heavy enough. The steel that includes a high percentage of carbon ensures good performance as well as ease in sharpening the blade. In addition, a combination of copper and brass in the layers that surround the blade gives the knife an exclusive and fresh look. The hole in the tip of the blade allows the knife to be hung on a hook. The handle is comfortable enough to hold. The finish condition and small details may not reach a level of perfection, but it is not a collectible item but a kitchen knife and in this role is a good value for its reasonable price.
