You'll love how easy it is to slice pounds of vegetables for long periods of time with the very sharp, light weight Kikuichi Warikomi Tsuchime slicing knife.
Its light weight comes from an extremely thin, but very hard and sharp, Japanese steel blade.
A hard steel blade holds a sharp edge longer, so you can rely on this knife for a great edge every time you use it.
A full tang and carefully crafted handle length provide the perfect balance.
Every aspect of Kikuichi knives are carefully thought out to please both the eye and the hand.
Each knife is hand forged, hand tempered, hand sharpened and hand finished.
Because Kikuichi knives are largely hand-crafted, each Kikuichi knife is unique! Knives will have slight variations, even within a set.
