Kikuichi Bunka Warikomi Gold - 6.5" (17 cm)
Kikuichi's Warikomi line uses high quality VG-1 (V-Gold) steel. VG-1 is rare and highly prized for its properties. The blade is stain resistant, will hold an edge and chips less than a damascus clad knife. The blade is made San Mai style; a traditional, high-end Japanese blade-making technique in which a very hard steel blade core is clad with softer steel on each side of the core. This maximizes the edge holding ability while still able to withstand impact and lateral stress.
Light and comfortable western style blade. The blade is a VG1 core layered with soft stainless steel.
Double bevel blade with a 50:50 bevel angle.
Handle: three riveted, Mahogany
Hand wash and dry immediately after use
