Kikuichi Hammered 6 inch Utility Knife Warikomi Tsuchime
Item ID: KK-WGAD13-5-3SP
A Kikuichi Warikomi Tsuchime 6 inch Utility Knife is great as a large paring knife or a boning knife. The Kikuichi 6 inch utility knife has a central core of extremely hard VG-10 stainless steel (HRC60) surrounded by 16 layers of Damascus stainless steel to provide both flexibility and dramatic visual appeal. Warikomi means a core surrounded by another metal. Tsuchime means "dimpled" pattern on the blade, useful because it reduces food sticking during slicing. The high carbon composition of VG10 steel core produces the tightest grain structure in steel, resulting in a sharper, harder edge than other stainless steel alloys found in typical European knives. Each knife is hand forged, hand tempered, hand sharpened and hand finished with a hand hammered pattern unique to each knife. All Elite Warikomi Damascus Tsuchime knives come with a lifetime guarantee and free re-sharpening by Kikuichi. All Kikuichi knives are made in Japan.
