What's a Kengata?

OK, so you've heard of gyutos, santokus, nakiris, even honesukis, but you're wondering what's a Kengata? Think of a Kengata as a hybrid between a santoku, bunka, and a gyuto. It has an accentuated k-tip, slight curvature to the belly both at the heel and the tip, and at 190mm truly becomes a multi-purpose knife from cutting vegetables, to meat and fish. If you're looking for that one conversation piece to be able to show your guests you know lots about different Japanese knife styles, a Kengata might be for you.


This knife is fitted with a Zelkova and Mahogany octagonal handle and hand sharpened for excellent out of the box sharpness.
