Our flagship knife. Crafted for perfect balance, ease of use, and maximum performance. Toss out that old dull knife and work with the tool your kitchen deserves.
Perfectly balanced along the entire length for comfort and grace in any kitchen tasks. The octagonal handle offers supreme grip no matter the situation or ingredients and fits in large and small hands, lefty or righty.
True to Japanese and Asian style, our knives are low in weight for delicacy in execution. The 17 degree angle, tighter than that of German knives, allows you to glide through ingredients with ease. Higher carbon levels allow for easy sharpening and more precise edges.
The VG10 steel is more resilient than full carbon steel, yet it sharpens with ease, allowing a finer edge. The durability of VG10 steel prevents dulling and rusting.
The "kurouchi", or blacksmith finish, is the signature of our forge in Southeast China. By laminating the blade in carbon it protects the core steel from the elements and adds the stunning look.
