The Akifusa range of knives represent exceptional value with top notch fit and finish usually found on much more expensive knives.`
SHAPE: Petty. One of the smallest knives in the collection and perfect for everyday slicing tasks.
STEEL: SRS15. Powder steels are a relatively new breed of steels generally used in industrial applications where toughness is key. In the knife world this means better edge retention in the form of higher hardness but unlike traditional steels with these attributes they are a lot less chippy.
FINISH: Polished or migaki
HANDLE: D shaped rosewood handle with a pakkawood ferrule. Theoretically this is a right handers handle but I know loads of people who happily use them left handed.
LENGTH: 135mm in length.
MAKER: Akifusa - Sanjo, Japan
BEST FOR: A solid smaller knife in an innovative steel.
SAUNDERS SAYS: "The fit and finish on these knives is phenomenal and they are fun to sharpen if you find sharpening fun."
These knives are hand-forged so there may be slight variations in measurements and finishes.
