Beautifully balanced and simple Japanese kitchen knife with blades made of three layers of stainless steel and SLD steel that guarantees excellent sharpness and edge retention due to its high carbon content. The side layers are stainless and thus facilitate maintenance. The handle made of thermally treated chestnut wood lies well in the hand and is pleasantly easy to work with. The stainless steel ferrule creates a harmonious transition to the blade. Unsurpassed in weight, feel, quality and price/performance, for a three-ply Japanese steel knife.
Thermo-wood: Under the influence of heat (170-250 °C) and water vapour, the structure of the wood is changed in a natural way and without the addition of chemicals, and improved for specific areas of use, e.g. in the kitchen. In the special process, the cell wall structure is modified in such a way that the ability to absorb water is decisively reduced and the resistance to bacteria is increased. The thermal treatment makes the colour shade slightly darker.
Each knife is unique and comes in a high-quality cardboard box.
Be careful with Japanese knives - very sharp. Do not cut bones, do not use them on hard surfaces.
- Hand wash
- Avoid soaking - especially with traditional knives, as this expands the wooden handles .
- Dry thoroughly
- Store individually
- Wipe with Camellia Oil when not in regular use
