Damascus and Lacquer Paper Knife - Purple and Red

  • These paper knives are made from hand forged damascus steel. The handles are lacquer-ware and also hand made by a lacquer-ware craftsman. The paper knives are single bevel knives (constructed for right handed users).

    These are made with high carbon steel (white steel). Like all carbon steel tools/knives, they can rust if not cared for properly. Please make sure to wipe them clean and dry after use. If you're planning on storing them for an extended period of time, we recommend oiling them with Tsubaki (camellia) oil or mineral oil.

    *These paper knives do not come with a sharp edge (though it is more than enough to open letters). Also, the etched damascus pattern will change when the knife is sharpened.
