This Japanese cutlery was designed with a variety of different woodworked handles. The particularly sharp blades of the knives allow precise cutting without destroying the texture of the meat so that its full flavour can be appreciated. The hand-forged blades show a decorative and subtle flame pattern and their double-bevelled edges ensure an even cutting surface on the food. The matching fork features a well-balanced shape and angle, offering high comfort and usability.
