  • Long, slightly curved blade is efficient for both slicing and chopping.
  • Exceedingly sharp cutting edge is long lasting and easy to maintain.
  • Durable PakkaWood handle resists moisture and has a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand.
  • This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.
  • Handcrafted in Japan.

        Use

        • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
        • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
        • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

        Care

        • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
        • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
        • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
        • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
        • Store the knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
