Master Saji has now been making knives for over 40 years and has become highly experienced in his art.
After testing and evaluating a very reputable Powdered Metallurgy High Speed Tool Steel, called “R-2” (Manufactured by Kobelco), he decided to produce an exciting new range of this traditionally hammer-forged Damascus kitchen knife using this modern ‘super steel’.
A dark & greyish R-2 Damascus blade, which features a crisp and vigorous Damascus pattern. This knife best matches with Wild & Outdoor taste Stag Bone handle scales and brass bolster and stainless rivets, which match the energetic style of the Damascus blade.
This knife is the special order request item from famous Chef in San Francisco, United States and available with only 2Pcs now.
Katana Slicer is easily identifiable by their blade tips, which look similar to that of a Katana. The long, narrow blade of Katana slicer is particularly useful for slicing meat, boneless fish, roast beef and ham. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip.

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.
