Ashi Hamono 150mm honesuki maru with Shirogami #2 carbon steel blade and western style riveted pakka wood handle. Saya cover is included. Right Handed.
Made right-handed. Primarily designed for hang-breaking and working with large cuts of pork and beef. This knife is also great for seaming and silver skin.
Ashi’s Shirogami #2 knives are some of the lightest, thinnest and easiest to sharpen knives we have come across. Their cutting feel is excellent due to top quality hand grinding, creating convexity on the side of the knife, and making them extra thin behind the edge. They hold their edge quite a bit longer than their stainless counterparts, but will require more maintenance to prevent rusting. Ideal for a home cook or professional that needs a high performance blade with good sharpenability.
Shirogami is a reactive carbon steel. It should be dried immediately after use to avoid rusting. It will patina with normal use. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.
Ashi Hamono was established in 1948 in Sakai City Japan; a major center of traditional knife making. Ashi makes knives utilizing a one piece of steel (rather than forge laminated 2/3 layer blade), called zenkou construction. Ashi’s Ginga line is famous for it’s thinness and precision, utilizing top quality carbon and stainless steels. These knives have an excellent fit and finish, from their grinding to heat treatment and hafting.
