  • It was only a matter of time before we dropped this knife. Hot on the heels of the 210mm, this is more of the same...30mm more. The steel is AUS-8 at about 58-59 HRC, so it will sharpen easily and have very good toughness (resistance to chipping). It is also relatively thin behind the edge, so it will move through food pretty easily, with very little wedging. The neck of the knife is a bit longer, helping to make the pinch grip a bit more comfortable. The handle is an American cherry oval handle, with an inner copper ring for stability over time.  It also comes with a ho wood saya, which features a very useful feature... the pin is attached by a string.

    We hope this knife serves you well.  We think it will make a great first Japanese knife, a good workhorse for home cooks and professionals alike, and will provide a very nice balance of cutting performance with ease of use and care.
