A knife for everyday vegetable prep.

This knife is made from 52100 carbon steel. For ideal balance of durability and edge retention, the blade is heat-treated to 62 Rockwell. Convex bevels, satin finish at 500 grit. Polished spine & choil.

Heirloom fit handle in rokkaku hanmaru shape made from stabilised Mazur birch & brass.

High carbon steel requires hand washing and most importantly, immediate drying to prevent corrosion—a small price to pay for a longer-lasting edge. Over time, a natural patina will form on the surface of the blade.
