A great knife in an unusual shape.
SHAPE: Ajikiri. Officially intended for prepping small fish but, unlike a deba, this knife is thin so suitable for more general prep work as well. This knife is single bevelled for right handers.
STEEL: Carbon steel. This steel takes and keeps a great edge but care must be take as this knife will rust if left wet.
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.
HANDLE: D shaped Ho wood handle with a plastic ferrule.
LENGTH: 105mm in length.
BEST FOR: Your first little fish prep knife.
SAUNDERS SAYS: "These cool wee knives are fun to use, super affordable and a great way to learn how to sharpen single bevel knives."
