< Knife with Beauty and Versatility, Useful in Every Situation>
The blade is made of the super high-end cutting steel material Super Gold II. Excellent in terms of the four major properties of hardness, tenacity, wear resistance and corrosion resistance, this cutting steel material allows long-lasting sharpness of the knife. This highly adaptable knife, with a blade 100 mm long and a total length of 225 mm, is suitable for a wide range of uses, such as for cutting steak and other meat, cheese and ham, and for peeling and cutting fruit into decorative shapes.
<Handle Selected from Three Types>
Dating back to the end of the Edo Period, Hakone Yosegi-zaiku is the fruit of the craft techniques developed over 1,000 years and the rich nature of Hakone. Although Yosegi-zaiku is an art of expressing patterns, wood is a natural material, meaning that all the works differ from one another in terms of colors and the beauty of the wood grains. The handle comes in three types: ICHIMATSU, YABANE, and NIKUZUSHI. Please appreciate the beauty and superb texture of the delicately made handle.
