Description:

Hideo Kitaoka san is a master at his art, specialises in single bevel knives and he is based in Takafu knife village. He uses traditional steels and White 2 is an excellent choice for these handmade knives.

The blade is ground on the front side and concave on the other. This chisel grind gives it a dramatically steeper angle geometry than dual ground knives and thus makes is sharper.

  • The knife is finished with a traditional ho wood handle and a plastic ferule.
  • The Yanigiba is a single bevel knife used in Japan for slicing raw fish.
