Named hikari after the Japanese word for illumination, this lightweight masterfully crafted knife is distinguished by its stunning birch PakkaWood handle and "hornet's nest" Damascus blade pattern. Extraordinarily sharp with a long-lasting edge, the blade features micro serrations that reduce friction for clean, effortless slicing of everything from ripe avocados to hard cheese.
- Shares the same award-winning construction as the hikari chef's knife – named 2016's Kitchen Knife of the Year.
- Dual-core stainless-steel blade is clad on each side with 71 micro layers of high-carbon, high-chromium stainless steel to create a "hornet's nest" pattern reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade.
- Exceedingly sharp cutting edge – hand sharpened to a 16-degree angle – is long-lasting and easy to maintain.
- Polished bolster promotes comfortable grip.
- Durable birch PakkaWood handle resists moisture and bacteria, and features low-gloss finish.
- Handle offers superb grip for both left- and right-handed users.
- Embossed endcap adds beauty and balance.
