These finely crafted small knives come from the Tosa Region on Shikoku Island, where the master blacksmiths still adhere to the old ways.
The master blacksmiths hand hammer a lamination of high carbon “white steel” between two layers of soppy wrought iron.
The handles are comprised of Ho wooden.
They arrive well sharpened with instructions for keeping up a razor edge. The small blade makes an ideal paring knife for fruit and vegetables.
