The Kikuichi Ice Hardened Molybdenum 8 inch chef's knife is a medium sized, extra sharp chef's knife at a great price. It is the size of knife preferred by most chefs due to the extra power they get from a full-sized 8 inch chef's knife. Molybdenum in steel increases wear resistance, prevents brittleness/chipping and improves resistance to corrosion. This chefs knife is machine forged, hand-buffed, hand-stamped and hand dimpled. The dimpling reduces food sticking to the blade during slicing and chopping. Because of all the hand work, each knife is unique. All Kikuichi Japanese-made knives have a lifetime guarantee.

  • Hand wash with warm water and mild detergent.
  • Do not put Kikuichi knives in the dishwasher
  • Rinse and dry immediately to prevent discoloration of high carbon steel knives
  • Store knife in a safe place, ideally with a blade protector, to protect the edge and prevent injury.
  • Do not attempt to use on frozen meat or cut through bones. Use only meat cleavers to cut through meat or chicken bones. Blades of any knives can be damaged attempting to cut through frozen meat or bones, which will invalidate the Kikuichi lifetime warranty.
