The high quality handles are made with red sandalwood and a black pakkawood ferrule, their comfortable octagonal shape allows a precision grip and provides authentic Japanese styling.

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 the fine craftsmanship and its sharp edge of your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for a long time.
This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
I love this site for authentic Japanese made knives. Great selection and most importantly many high carbon steel knives. Fast and reasonably priced shipping.
This knife is perfect both in appearance and in use !!! :-)
no previous experience on the japanese knives, but this one has a firm good fiiling on the grip and the damascus looks just beautifull.
This is the 5th and 6th knife I have purchased from japanesechefsknife.com. Usually arrives in two to three days. Not only the best selections of steel, but also the most beautiful knives. Thank you!!
Good knife, very sharp, just this is my first steel knife
