Crafted in Niigata Japan, the TD range from Hitohira has an Aogami (blue) steel high carbon core/edge (one of the sharpest steels), along with stainless cladding (for ease of maintenance). The handle is a stand-out, what is called a "fusion", half way between a western handle (comfortable for most) and the Japanese style. At this price there is very little that comes close to the performance, the perfect introduction to carbon steel and Japanese knives.

* As our Japanese kitchen knives are hand-made (some with natural materials like timber), small variation to size and colour may occur.
* High carbon steel (found in the core / edge of this chef knife) will change colour (patina) over time. Some care is required to prevent rust.
