The core material is the new SKD11 stainless die steel hardened to Rc64 for exceptional sharpness and edge holding properties. This manufacturing process produces a rust resistant blade a good way to take care of its perfection through the years. A polished hexagonal Ebony wood maintain enhances the wonderful thing about each and every knife. Blade size is 4? and overall length is 8½?. Shipped in a ravishing gift box.

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 soft wrought iron.
The handles are produced from Ho wood.
They come well sharpened with instructions for maintaining a razor edge. The small blade makes a super paring knife for fruit and vegetables.
