Mr. Masui, the President of the hand-made knife company Hiro Knives (SHIKI), has a very strong but simple knife making policy: He designs and produces his own Custom knife designs, using his considerable experience and knowledge of knife production techniques. He is truly passionate about his knives and he is always researching new ideas for knives that are creative and innovative!
In the process of introducing and selling our fine Japanese kitchen knives, we have received many requests for fancy steak knives with Damascus blades. We asked Mr. Masui (President of Hiro company, the producer of SHIKI knives) if he could help, since he is one of the few talented craftsmen that can design and handcraft knives all by himself. He is also well known as a flexible craftsman who designs and produces innovative knives.
The Gorgeous Multi-colored Rainbow Damascus Steak Knife features a Virgin Carbon Steel blade core (HRc. 62) and outer layers of forge-laminated Brass, Copper and Stainless Steel, which, together, form a beautiful Multi-colored ‘Rainbow Damascus’ Steel. It is still the Winter season in Japan, yet Mr. Masui decided to call this "SAKURA-Rainbow Damascus" (In Japan, the flowering Sakura / Cherry tree is a much-loved symbol of spring).
The Black Pakka Wood Handle with Red-Stripe has a unique, rounded shape, yet it is easy and comfortable to grip. The Brass bolster, fiber spacer and decorative Mosaic pin add the finishing touches to this elegant design.
We are sure these stylish knives will make your dining table more beautiful and make dinner times with your family and guests extra special.
Steak Knives are popular in the West and are commonplace in many Western homes. With their blissfully smooth cutting performance and attractive, decorative designs, high quality steak knives can really enhance your special mealtimes.

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.
This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
