As soon as we released this knife to our customers it became apparent that it was a special item. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The Shibata Kashima is made from R-2 stainless steel which has been hammer-forge clad with a softer stainless steel. This cladding reduces weight and protects the inner core from shocks. A very well executed hairline finish is applied to the blade. It is a simple look for a simple and elegant blade design.

R-2 is also known as SG-2. It is a very high tech powdered metallurgical stainless steel that is used for making surgical instruments, metal cutting tools, and kitchen knives. It possesses a high edge retention ability while being moderately wear resistant and easy to sharpen.

This is a laser, pure and simple. It is quite short at the heel, coming in at 45mm. The profile is flat to about the halfway point and then fades to a medium height tip. This knife will please cooks of all persuasions be they rockers or push cutters. Shibata-san is a great sharpener so these are performers right out of the box.

We are supplying a very limited number of these popular knives with custom handles made by our favorite woodworkers. Each one will be a truly unique work of the blacksmith and woodworker’s art.
