Knife made by Daitoku Akahata, a cutlery craftsman from Matsusaka, Mie Prefecture. Unlike mass-produced kitchen knives, it is a blacksmith's work, and it is a hammered knife that hammers steel one by one and forms it.
Combined iron and steel knife (blade part is steel). Since it is made with a double edge instead of a single edge, it can be used as a kitchen knife for everyday use regardless of whether you are right-handed or left-handed.
Mr. Akahata himself carved the walnut wood handle, which is almost cylindrical. It's not too flat, but has just the right amount of roundness. You will fall in love with its appearance. The metal parts are wrapped in brass. Both can enjoy the aging while using it.
This is a gyuto with a blade length of 21 cm. It has a long blade length and is a size that feels larger than a typical Santoku knife. The shape is very close to the most basic shape of the Santoku knife (Bunka knife). Slightly narrower and longer than Santoku. Like the Santoku, you can use it as a main knife. Both have similar uses, so choose whichever you prefer.
A kitchen knife made by forging iron and steel and forging one by one. In addition to the sharpness, the feeling when you hold it in your hand and the texture that increases as you use it are the charms of a carefully crafted forged knife.
Care is not much different from ordinary kitchen knives. No special care is required as long as you wipe off the water after washing. If there is rust , use a commercially available rust remover. Among them, the eraser-type rust remover is recommended because it is easy to use and there is little risk of damaging the blade.
Regarding sharpening, in addition to sharpening service near you, we also accept requests for re-sharpening by Mr. Akahata who made it. Please refer to the manual that comes with the product. This is a guideline for re-sharpening, but please consider re-sharpening when you feel that the sharpness has become dull and difficult to use. Since it depends on the frequency of use and the environment, there is no guideline for the period, such as after ○ years. For rust, we recommend using a rust remover first.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns about care or handling.
