A very special sashimi style yanagiba traditional Japanese knife. This knife has a gorgeous ebony wood handle, real natural water buffalo horn bolster, and is made of highest grade blue-2 carbon steel (Rockwell hardness "HRC" of at least 60). The combination of this steel and the expert craftsmanship makes for a VERY hard, very strong, spectacularly forged, ground and finished blade. Don't miss the opportunity to own such a special knife, suitable for the serious chef working in the Japanese tradition, or for the collector of fine knives. YES, this knife really is crafted by HAND and then finished by hand finishing/sharpening. This is a great opportunity to get a REAL Japanese knife handmade by real Japanese master craftsmen -- these are NOT assembly-line factory made knives! Own a piece of history as this ancient art is slowly becoming lost to robots and factories and cheap/low-end assembly and materials. Comes in a very, very nice gift box. Remember, this is CARBON steel, NOT stainless, so you must know how to care of it and keep it away from acidic foods that can stain or discolour it, and keep it away from excess humidity to avoid rusting. Of course it's for right-hand use only (sharpened only on the right side), and requires good maintenance and care for a lifetime or service. It's not rocket science to care for a knife, but a knife like this, like a high performance sports car, does require more care than your standard German stainless steel and plastic chef's knife! Being made of very hard carbon steel, this knife WILL be more fragile than other knives, especially stainless steel knives, and as such you are responsible for proper knife handling and care -- edge damage is never covered under any warranty.
