“Beautiful” and “Japanese Tradition” are the words that perhaps best describe these Custom Rainbow Damascus kitchen knives from Master Blacksmith Takeshi Saji.
The unique multi-colored Damascus blades match the natural figure and grain of the Ironwood Handles and the decorative mosaic pins exceptionally well. The knife handles are also fitted with a polished metal bolster for improved durability and blade-balance. The blades feature a core of Blue #2 high-carbon steel that is clad with multiple layers of rust-resistant stainless steel, brass and copper.
As you may already know, Master Saji is always seeking new methods and ideas for his innovative and distinctive traditional hammer forged knives. His expertise in advanced forging techniques and fabricating custom handles has allowed the creation of these very special, and utterly unique, custom Damascus knives.
The Paring knife is useful for a variety of commonplace kitchen tasks, but it is primarily used for peeling and accurately shaping fruits and vegetables. Paring knives are particularly useful when cutting small items held in the hand, which makes them indispensable in the kitchen and an ideal companion for Gyuto knives.

However, double bevel edge knives with a 50/50 grind can be used by both right-handed and left-handed people without any problems.
