YOSHIKANE SKD HAMMERED HAKATA CHESTNUT HANDLE 180MM 

Founded in 1919, Yoshikane Hamono is renowned as one of Japan's leading knifemakers. Their workshop is located in Sanjo, Nigata prefecture and is currently headed by Kazuomi Yamamoto. This series is a three-layer construction with a SKD11 core, this semi-stainless tool steel boasts superior edge retention whilst still being easy to resharpen. The blade is forged with a distal taper with a very fine tip. The spine is quite thick but the blades stepped grind is very fine behind the edge making this series excel at fine cutting, the subtle convexity and tsuchime aid in food releasing as you cut. We highly recommend this series for those looking for a very fine edge that’s not too demanding to maintain.
