Zakuri 270mm Blue #1 Kurouchi Takobiki

  • This Zakuri 270mm Blue #1 Takobiki is a double-beveled knife. The Ho wood handle is octagon shaped and has a water buffalo horn ferrule. This knife is amazingly thin and makes a great slicer. The blue #1 steel takes a very good edge and holds it a pretty long time. This knife is carbon, so it can rust if not cared for properly.
