Kiridashi knife, Shirogami 2 carbon steel, Damascus finish - Masuda Yoshihide

  • £320.00

Description

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.

FINISH: Damascus or Suminagashi. This type of finish is made by creating a Kitaeji; which is produced by repeatedly folding/stacking then compressing two different steels until they create a laminated pattern. This can then be manipulated in various ways to produce the maker’s desired pattern effect. This material is then clad around the core metal of the blade as an elaborate protective layer for the core steel - thus giving the knife a beautiful and striking appearance.

SIZE: 230mm length, 27mm width, 80mm blade length

MAKER: Masuda Yoshihide

SAUNDERS SAYS: "We wanted to get some kiridashi that were completely hand forged. Our supplier delivered tenfold. You will have to pry these from my hands"
