The Kikuichi GW Series Ginsan Sanmai Petty Knife combines features of both a paring knife and a chef’s knife. The narrow, straight blade and sharp tip make this knife well-suited to a variety of tasks, including paring, slicing, sectioning, and portioning.
Kikuichi bladesmithing began in the 13th century, creating Samurai swords for the Japanese emperor. Kikuichi has been making kitchen cutlery for 150 years, with the royal symbol of the chrysanthemum on all blades. The GW Series exemplifies the Japanese design principle of shibui, with a balance between simplicity and complexity. The three-layer sanmai blade features a Ginsan Silver-3 core with SUS440 stainless steel outer layer. The blade is sharpened to 61 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention, and hand engraved with the Kikuichi chrysanthemum logo. The octagonal wa handle is made from walnut, with a water buffalo horn ferrule.
Hand wash and dry immediately. Made in Japan.
