Ajikiri Knife, Shirogami 2 Carbon Steel, Iron Clad, Polished Finish - Ittetsu

  • £55.00

Description

Ittetsu is a relatively new maker for us, but what we have seen we have been very impressed with.

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: 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. 

FINISH: Polished.

HANDLE: Magnolia handle with a plastic ferule

LENGTH: 105mm and 120mm in length

MAKER: Ittetsu - Echizen, Japan

These knives are made from stamped steel. It is worth noting that they would benefit from some time on the stone prior to their first use.
