SAITO KNIVES SASHIMI KNIFE LAYERED STAINLESS STEEL 240MM ~
This Sashimi knife is handcrafted in Sakai, Osaka Japan.  Sakai region is a very famous for making traditional style Japanese knives and swords since ancient time.
This authentic shape of sashimi knife is called Yanagiba ( Willow leaf blade ) and has a large surface of edge on one side and hollow concave on the other side.   This shape is the secret for the sharpness of Japanese knives as the hollow side catch the ingredient while edge side separate or push away the cut ingredients.
 
The blade is Gold stainless steel forged with 8 Chrome - Vanadium stainless steel.  Each knife has a unique pattern called Kasumi from forging 2 types of steels together.
 
The handle is made of Ho-wood ( Japanese big leaf Magnolia ) capped with Water Buffalo horn bolster.  Ho - wood is light, naturally antibacterial and increases grips when wet. 
 
This knife is handmade with love, pride and maybe some scratches from the knife master.
Size, weight and colour of bolster may be slightly different from knife to knife.
Each knife is hand sharpened prior to shipping for full performance.
 
This knife is for right hander and the measurement for Sashimi knife is from tip to the top of handle,  not to the heel of the blade.
