Jikko is a family business established in 1901 in Sakai City, Osaka and has cultivated extensive relationships with traditional craftsmen in Sakai.  From basic to top shelf, Jikko maintains a high standard of quality control. Wonderful in house sharpening is done on all of their single bevel knives, and special care is taken to provide a flat, fine-polished ura (side opposite omote bevel).

This knife has a hard carbon steel core with iron cladding for added durability. The entire blade will develop a patina with use, especially with acidic foods. Special attention is needed to keep from rusting. Do not leave wet. Hand wash & dry, no dishwasher. Hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain cutting boards are preferred; avoid bamboo and plastic cutting boards. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.
