Sakai Kikumori ‘Choyo’ 270mm Yanagi. Single bevel aogami #1 core blade with mirror polish iron cladding. Octagon magnolia wood and water buffalo ferrule handle. Comes with saya.
Choyo series knives are specially made, fine-finished, professional quality knives from Sakai Kikumori. They are hand-forged by top level smiths and hand-finished on wet grinders in Sakai. These have a somewhat lighter blade with a mirror polish on the face and a rounded, polished spine and heel. These knives have very nice, smooth sharpen-ability and good edge life, not to mention excellent cutting feel. The Choyo series is highly recommended for a professional or sushi chef looking for high-performance, and easy sharpening.
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.
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.
