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 quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for long time.
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.
Very good thank you
Purchased the 240mm version and it arrived razor sharp and has held up under daily use in a professional kitchen, have only had to use my steel on to keep it sharp after 4 weeks Knife is exceptionally light and well balanced but seems sturdy so far
The knife was a wedding gift. I personally never seen or used the knife. The recipients tell me it is a great knife.
knife very good to handle, very beautiful and functional in the kitchen. I work at a restaurant in australia, and the knife does the job well.
Shipping was really quick and they stayed in touch throughout the process.
