To distinguish these very special ‘SHIKI Black Dragon Series High-End Custom’ knife “ from other SHIKI brand knives, Master Craftsman Mr. Masui has selected to use only the very best materials and has spent even more time to ensure that every production process, particularly the detailed hand finishing, is performed faultlessly.
To match the special matt-finish of VG-10 Damascus blade, Mr. Masui decided to use beautiful natural wood texture of Quince wood handle scales. Due to the restriction of importing the natural wood materials, Quince wood material is becoming more distinctive. The Quince Wood handle scales and the seamlessly welded stainless steel bolster are nicely hand contoured, for perfect balance and comfortable grip. A gorgeous decorative Mosaic Pins add an elegant accent and contrast nicely with the unique wood handle.The handle and the seamless stainless steel bolsters are contoured by hand so that they are comfortable to grip and are nicely accented by a decorative mosaic pin and a black & gold spacer.

However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.

This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
I could tell the quality from the moment I picked up the knife from the box. Well balanced and beautiful. Awesome blade and sharpness. Previously owned *lots* of cheaper knives plus the mass produced Wustoff that I’ve had for twenty years. So glad my chef-friend talked me into spending a little more for Japanese made knives.
this is the 4th brand shiki knife Ive purchased from japanesechefsknife.com because the 1st three are absolutely the best knifes Ive ever purchased. I gave this one as a gift to my friends Don and Nancy and in their 60+ years of cooking they said they never owned a knife as fine and sharp as this. Great sharpness, balance, and beauty I highly recommend.
Beautiful knife which out of the box is the sharpest I have ever experienced. Makes quick work of slicing onions, potatoes and raw carrots. My wife and I love using this knife in our kitchen!
