The Kotetsu line of knives comes to us from Takefu via Hiroshima. Shibata Takayuki, a master sharpener, in partnership with blacksmith Yoshimi Kato create the Kotetsu. Made with Aogami Super steel, these are some of the thinness and lightest knives in house. Well balanced and stainless make this not only easy to maintain but a workhorse in the kitchen. - "Art over Beauty."
This is a new knife shape from Shibata - San. Same thin and sharp AS, newer Western Shape.
Please note that these knives come with Jarrah wood handles. Jarrah is an Australian hardwood used primarily in furniture due to its high durability. Jarrah wood is a great choice for a knife handle; durable, anti-microbial and most importantly, sustainable.
This KNIFE is not stain resistant - please remember to keep it dry and clean to avoid rusting and unwanted patina.
