The Spiny Oyster Gemstone Handle has a beautiful appearance and to ensure that it can be gripped comfortably, it has been carefully contoured and polished by hand. A decorative Mosaic Pin secures the handles scales and a stainless steel bolster has been fitted to improve the durability and blade balance of the knife.

The Katana Slicer is easily identifiable by its angular blade tip, which looks similar to that of a Japanese Katana. The long, narrow blade of Katana slicer is particularly useful for slicing meat (Either raw, or cooked roast beef, ham etc.) and boneless fish fillets. The long blade allows the meat, or fish, to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip.

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.
