Korin 8A Stain-Resistant

光琳 8A

Korin’s traditional Japanese 8A knives are made of 8A Austrian stain resistant steel and a magnolia wood handle with a water buffalo horn bolster. The 8A steel is a high quality steel with rust-resistant properties, making it ideal for busy chefs. They are easier to maintain than carbon steel knives and have a longer edge retention. This line is recommended for those looking for a more affordable and lower maintenance traditional Japanese knife. Wooden covers are not included, but may be purchased separately.
