Kitaoka only makes single bevel knives so you can rest assured that he knows what he is doing.

SHAPE: Matsuba. Bit of an unusual one - it’s small and intended to be used like a petty but with a distinctive curve to the tipTraditional Japanese knives, such as this, should exclusively be sharpened by hand on Whetstones. It is a single bevel for right-handlers.

STEEL: Aogami (blue) 2 steel. It is a reactive carbon steel which is easy to sharpen and holds an edge well. This steel is frequently paired with a kurouchi finish and is often chosen for traditional-style Japanese knives.  

FINISH: Damascus or Suminigashi. This is a folded finish that is forge welded to the outside of the hard cutting steel.

HANDLE: D shaped Rosewood wood handle with pakkawood ferrule.

LENGTH: 120mm blade length.

MAKER: Kitaoka - Takefu, Japan

BEST FOR: Smaller kitchen tasks. Or for the person who thinks they have one of every Japanese knife shape but probably doesn’t have that one.

SAUNDERS SAYS: "On my Christmas list for sure."
