This essential Japanese blade does almost everything for you, except cook. Its flat tip provides an extra layer of precision that we recommended to use this to slice vegetables, particularly ones where you need extreme control over the cut thickness, such as potatoes.
- The 7.5" blade is crafted from a high carbon 7Cr17 440C stainless steel core that has a hardness of 58 HRC, covered with 3-layer composite steel on either side
- Full tang
- Its 4.7" ergonomic handle is made from G10 laminate, a mixture of fiberglass mesh and epoxy resin, resulting in very durable material which is used extensively on knife handles.
- Slightly weightier at 213g so each slice allows gravity to do some work
- Polkadot pattern laser-etched on the blades for a stylish finish, making it wear resistant and corrosion resistant.
