Size: 300 mm
Note: Lead Time : 2 Months
Description: The flowing pattern in hand-forged layered steel can be mesmerizing but the advantages of suminagashi (sometimes called Damascus Steel) extend well beyond its beauty. To create these exquisite sashimi knives, craftsmen join carbon steel with soft iron in the kasumi method, then pound and fold the steel eight times on each side. This is a lengthy process, taking as long as needed to make eight kasumi knives, but the end result is a stunning 16-layer blade with the strength of a hongasumi knife. 

The takobiki is a variation of the yanagi and is used to slice straight-cut sashimi. It's thin body makes cutting thin slices of fish easier than the yanagi. The rounded tip and balanced weight works well on difficult ingredients such as octopus, from which it gets its name. 

Originated in Kanto (Tokyo) region.
