Kiku Takashi is a value line from Aoki hamono of Sakai (also owns Sakai Takayuki brand). This line while priced very cheap, is still hand forged and sharped by skilled craftsmen from Sakai, using quality high carbon white steel (can rust!), it really gets the job done. I decided to carry this line for those who is on a very tight budget or just want to have a test on single bevel knives.
This 3pc entry set has 3 types of blades which is really all you need for having a try with Japanese single bevel knives, the set comes with
- 150mm Deba
- 165mm Usuba
- 210mm Yanagiba
- Hand wash and wipe dry, NO DISHWASHER
- Please use the knife as it should be, not frozed food, and not as screw driver
- Hand sharpen with waterstone, honing rod is not suitable for Japanese knives
