Item #156561


Product Information:

Former Product Id: 05.130.2

Our 8¼˝ Meat Slicing (Butakiri) Knife comes from the Tosa Region on Shikoku Island where master blacksmiths still adhere to the old ways. The maker hand hammers a layer of high carbon "white steel" between two layers of soft wrought iron. They are tempered to Rockwell c63 and will hold an edge far longer than any Western made knife. The handles are made from Ho wood. This style of blade is intended for slicing large cuts of meat into smaller pieces. The blade is a bit thicker to withstand heavy use. Blade length is 8¼˝ and overall length is 14˝. It is sent fully honed and ready for use with instructions for maintaining this edge.
