Takohiki Slicing knife for right hand use.
This traditional Takohiki slicing knife was handcrafted by our in-house knife master Masaaki Saito here in Brisbane.
This beautiful Takohiki sashimi knife slices loin of seafood like Salmon, Tuna, Kingfish you name it or beef, lamb and Kangaroo for Tataki or Carpaccio.
The name “ Takohiki “ ( Or some call it Takobiki ) can be translated as “ Octopus slicer “ although it’s not specifically made for.
Still, you can easily imagine how hard it is to slice soft and gummy Octopus thinly but this knife can slice away anything on the chopping board with one clean stroke.
This knife has skinny straighter edge line that allows to keep the straight cut line and has a single bevel with hollow ground ( concave ) at the backside for surgical precision cutting.
This shape of the edge is called “ Kataba “ and is the key for the sharpness of traditional Japanese knives.
The blade is made of 12C27 Swedish stainless steel which is very reliable blade material with great edge retention and balanced hardness.
The polished natural wooden handle is made of Red Ironbark and it has a very comfortable grip that none of the artificial materials can match.
