Hitohira Kikuchiyo Ren | 240mm Gyuto Knife
Crafted in Sakai, Japan by renowned blacksmith Kikuchiyo and sharpened by up and coming star Ren. This is a special knife and amazing value for such a high quality hand forged steel blade. Ren is the grandson of one of the best sharpeners that ever graced Japan's shores, Morihiro San. These knives are being sold close to cost to help him gain experience.
These knives are extremely thin on last batches we have received. They will cut amazingly but require care to prevent chipping or warping of edge. Please take extra care as to how you cut, what you cut and where you cut (ie, soft cutting boards only).

I have built a very strong relationship with ProTooling. Paul (the owner) has a very good attitude and that reflects in the products he stands behind. He provides only the best quality through all of the good relationships he has been able to grow throughout the years with the top craftsmen in Japan. He and his staff are amazing. Keep up the good work.
