While introducing and selling our fine Japanese kitchen knives, we have received many requests for the fancy steak knives with Damascus blades. We have requested Mr. Masui (President of Hiro company (Maker of SHIKI)) whom is one of the talented craftsmen who can design the knives and hand make the knives all by himself. He is flexible for producing innovative design knives.
Now, finally, Mr. Masui came up with gorgeous Damascus Steak Knife. 4 inches, VG-10 core forge layered Damascus stainless steel blade in mirror polish. DuPont Corian Handle is unique round shape design, yet easy to grip, with Mosaic pin and Brass hilt with fiber spacer.
We are sure this will make your dining table more brilliant and make more special dinner time for your family and special guests.

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.

- We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.
