Kikuichi Traditonal Knives are blacksmith forged by hand using traditional techniques that have been passed down through the ages. 250 years ago these same blacksmiths would have been making swords but in the modern age they make knives. Some of the blades offered are single edge (chisel ground) some are double edged (even beveled) but all should be sharpened by hand on whetstone for best results. All Traditional Kikuichi knives offered are made of White Steel which is known for its edge retention and ability to take a new edge.
Please note that these are pure carbon steel knives and will rust if not wiped dry after each use.
