Summary

The Kikuichi history of fine craftsmanship dates back to 12th century Japan, when an ancestor became a swordsmith for the emperor, marking each sword with the monarch’s chrysanthemum symbol. Today this proud tradition of metalwork continues with beautiful cutlery etched with this enduring emblem. Handcrafted in Japan, their slicing knife has a long, slender blade to precisely cut meats, poultry and fish into uniform slices.

  • Damascus-style blade is forged from 16 layers of incredibly dense VG-10 “super steel” to provide precise control while maintaining a razor-sharp edge.
  • The handsome dimpled pattern (“tsuchime” in Japanese) helps the blade glide easily through food without sticking.
  • Tsuchime pattern is hand-hammered, then heat-tempered, making each blade unique.
  • Traditional wooden handle is triple-riveted to guarantee optimal balance and control.
  • Handcrafted in Japan.

Use & Care

Use

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a waterstone or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
