      We are so excited to offer our line of SLD knives. These knives are made for the line, or the home cook who wants to blow through some sweet potatoes. These have unique workhorse grind with a long taper. It has good food release properties, and make quick work of harder foods like potatoes and squash. 

        SLD is a tough semi-stainless version of D2 tool steel specially tuned for kitchen knives. Low - maintenance, decent edge retention, easy to sharpen, and a bit tougher than traditional steels, it is made for the line. 

        Cladding is semi - stainless, so you should dry the knife before storage. If you leave water on if for over 30 minutes, you will start to see light staining, that will easily scrub off. So you can set it down while working, and not have any problems. A quick wipe before you store it, is about as difficult as it gets to maintain this knife. 

       These all feature our "Tokushu Knife" Kanji, and high quality handles made by local craftsman in Sanjo, Japan. The handles are some of the best quality I have seen in this style.

Beautiful Monster

This is a great knife at any price. Perfect workhorse, but don't let that fool you- there is plenty of precision here, too. Also beautiful to look at, in a sort of industrial way, and fit and finish are better than anything I've seen in this style- and especially this price range. Mr. Peters' sharpening service gives it a really custom fit edge, and it will do literally anything you could even halfway reasonably need in a kitchen setting. The steel is as advertised- hard AND tough, and easy to work with and care for. Home run, boys!


Great workhorse grind, easily cuts through sweet potatoes or squash with ease.
