This is a Japanese style medium sized knife, suitable for cutting and cooking. The blade is slightly narrower than Small chef's, but the greater weight adds to its striking force. Also able to cut thin slices of meat and fish. The wide blade is good for scooping and is made from forged carbon steel. The handle is cut from curly birch, coated with linseed oil – which ensures a firm grip, even when wet.
Comes with a storage block in birch, also with a linseed oil coating.
Crafted, sharpened and perfected by hand in Harmoinen, Finland.
