Kyohei Shindo Sakimaru Knife - 270mm

Experience the perfect blend of traditional craftsmanship and modern functionality with the Kyohei Shindo Sakimaru Knife. This exquisite slicer features a cutting core made of Blue (aogami) #2 steel, known for its added chromium and tungsten, enhancing the knife's toughness. The kurouchi finish on the carbon cladding not only adds to its aesthetic appeal but also helps in preventing rust formation.

The knife's design showcases a stunning contrast from the polished cutting edge to the smokey cladding and kurouchi above the shinogi. It's not only easy on the eyes but also incredibly sharp on the cutting board, making it a must-have for any kitchen.

Unique Design for Versatile Use

At 270mm, you might consider a traditional sujihiki. However, the Kyohei Shindo Sakimaru offers a unique twist with its samurai sword-like tip, also known as a tanto. This design serves the same purpose as a sujihiki (flesh cutting) but adds an element of excitement and conversation to your culinary presentations. Perfect for impressing guests and elevating your kitchen experience.

Elegant and Functional Handle

The Kyohei Shindo Sakimaru Knife features a simple yet classy rosewood wa handle, providing both elegance and functionality. The handle's design ensures a comfortable grip, making it an ideal choice for both professional chefs and cooking enthusiasts.
