This beautiful multi-purpose knife is made by Master Knife Crafter Togashi for Suisin using shiro-niko. The steel is strengthened and shaped in cycles of tempering and pounding, producing high flexibility. The Momiji knife gets a long finishing stage on a wooden wheel, the craftsmen polishing the entire blade to give it protection against rusting.There is a slight blade edge on the back side of the knife to prevent moisture from gathering on the blade edge and to provide edge stability.
For Left-Handed Customer
- Left-handed blades must be special ordered from Japan, and will cost 50% more than the right-handed blades. Due to how each traditional Japanese knife is handmade by right handed craftsmen, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to forge and deliver.
