You will love the balance of this extra large Kikuichi chefs knife. You'll appreciate its price too!
Each Kikuichi Ice Hardened Molybdenum knife has a dimpled pattern which is hand hammered, so every knife is unique!
Because of ice hardening, the razor-sharp edge is easy to maintain.
Ice hardening maximizes no-stain properties and adds significantly to blade hardness, making the steel similar to the more expensive VG-10 steel in hardness.
The Western-style compressed wood handle has sturdy three rivet construction for long life.
This high quality Kikuichi knife is a great value, especially when you think of all of the amount of hand crafted work that goes into making these superior knives!
