Sakai Kikumori 180mm Bunka knife. Aogami 2 carbon steel core with nashiji finished stainless cladding. Japanese magnolia octagon handle with buffalo horn ferrule.
Forged and ground thin for smooth cutting and easy sharpening but with a stiff substantial feel and generous height and a full belly. Aogami #2 steel, made by Hitachi, has the lowest carbon content of the Aogami family, giving a little more toughness. The stainless cladding has nashiji (pearskin) finish. The aogami core is not stainless (for a non-stainless steel it does rust slowly), so keep dry when not in use to avoid rust.
Sakai Kikumori was started in 1926 and draws on Sakai's 600 year history as the major center of traditional Japanese cutlery manufacturing. They work with a large variety of Sakai's best smiths, sharpeners and small factories to offer a wide variety of knives ranging from traditional materials and styles to more modern, western influenced styles and materials.
