Japanese kitchen knife by the master smith Hiroshi Kato, who has hand-crafted beautiful cutting tools for over 50 years. Delicate traces of hammering adorn the upper section of the triple-layered blade, imbuing the knife with rustic charm. The cutting layer is made of tough and hard Blue Paper Steel; this highly pure carbon steel guarantees exceptional sharpness and durability. Rustproof steel is used for the outer layers to facilitate maintenance. The octagonal handle made of American cherry wood is enclosed within a black wood laminate ferrule. The blade is hand-signed using an engraving stylus. Double bevel, hardened to 62 HRC.
