How can you not love this knife? Looking like a mini santoku, its cute appearance hides its true power. The KoBocho Classic blade (Ko means ďsmallĒ in Japanese) is just 100mm long so itís more suited to the smaller jobs in the kitchen. Such as slicing garlic, chopping herbs, or mincing shallots. But what it does it does ever so well. Hiding behind that gorgeous rustic exterior is a blade fashioned from Aogami Super steel. The softer carbon steel cladding features a lovely kurouchi finish which protects and strengthens the inner steel while aiding in food release. The knife weighs in at a scant 2.4 ounces and is super thin, just 2.3mm at the heel. As with all of Takeda-sanís blades, the Banno KoBocho is entirely made by hand...by eye. So each blade will be slightly different and entirely unique. Completed with a handsome rosewood and ebony octagonal handle, this little knife just wants to be held and used.

  • Blade Length: 100 mm (4")
  • Overall Length: 220 mm (8.75")

    Please know that all measurements are approximations! Takeda-san and his helpers make each of these knives by hand, without a template. As a result, every knife is unique and the stats will vary.
