Description: Yoshikazu Ikeda is one of the finest smiths in Sakai, Japan. Ikeda has been making knives and swords for over 40 years, beginning in his early 20s. In 1988, he was recognized as a dentoukougeishi by the Japanese government and since 2001 he has been the chairman of the association of dentoukougeishi. Dentoukougeishi are highly skilled master artisans recognized by the Japanese government for their commitment to protecting traditional arts and techniques.
The nakiri usuba is a traditional Japanese knife form ideal for chopping and slicing fruits and vegetables, as well as boneless meats. The edge is double beveled, like a Western knife. Though sometimes called a vegetable cleaver, the thin edge geometry makes it a precision tool, rather than a Japanese equivalent to meat cleavers.
These knives are completely hand forged by a true master. The center layer of hard Aogami #1 is clad on both sides with many-layered damascus forged from mild steels (suminagashi), resulting in a keen, long lasting edge. Blue steel has a very keen edge with tremendously long edge holding. A distal taper ensures a perfect balance.
The octagonal handle is comfortable for both right and left handed users. It is formed from Macassar ebony wood. Macassar ebony holds up extremely well in the harsh environment of the kitchen. A buffalo horn ferrule completes the handle. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher. We recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust.
This knife is accompanied by a handmade ho wood saya (blade guard) with ebony pin. This protects the knife's edge while in transport and storage.
