Save 20% on remaining stock. We're upgrading the handles on these and need to sell out our remaining inventory before switching over. Quantities limited. This authentic Japanese traditional kitchen knife line features hand-forged double-layer white-paper steel blade (white #1) but is very reasonably priced. These are every day kitchen knives that many good cooks love to use in Japan. They sharpen really well and hold a nice edge. The grinds on these knives for the money are impressive which makes them a great overall value. If you've never tried a good Japanese knife and don't want to spend a ton of money these would be an excellent choice. The handles are oval shape and the grinds are even on both sides so these would make a good choice for lefties and righties alike.
  • This knife is called a ko yanagi but it's really like a small petty since the blade is ground evenly on both sides. This is a versatile little knife and can be used as a general purpose utility knife at home, school or work.

    Great knife for the value. The edge needed some work, but after about 10 minutes with a 1,3,6k it was good to go and very sharp. Super easy steel to sharpen.

    I have owned this knife for 7 months now and it is my favorite knife. The white steel is a dream to sharpen, the imperfections (mine had a slight cavity about a cm wide near the tip on one side) can be corrected easily (and enthusiastically!) and the knife can be easily thinned, if that's an issue. As my daily line knife, I like it so much that I can get over it's relatively high reactivity. It's thickness definitely wedges onions and some other veg, but I still reach for it. The cheap oval handle is suprisingly one of my favorite things about this knife: feels great and is secure. Not a cookie-cutter perfect knife with a hefty price tag, it's a handmade knife that has personality and is made to be used.
