SHAPE: Kiridashi - a single bevel Japanese craft knife. A very useful tool for woodworking, grafting or letter opening.
STEEL: Shirogami (white) 2 steel. It is a reactive carbon steel which is easy to sharpen and holds an edge well. This steel is often chosen for traditional-style Japanese knives. Due to the non stainless nature of this steel care must be taken to dry the knives properly after use.
FINISH: Kurouchi. This rustic finish is achieved by leaving the forge scale on that forms during the knife's production. It not only looks great but gives some protection against rust.
Tsuchime. This is a hand hammered finish that is not only beautiful but also functional. The small depressions stop food sticking to the knife. This finishes comes in many different forms from the traditional round hammer marks to more modern patterns.
