Tosa Tadayoshi 180mm Ikasaki squid knife with Aogami 1 blade and walnut handle. Meant for breaking down squid.

Hand forged knives from the Tosa area of Shikoku Island, Japan's least populated island with a long history of smithing. Shikoku's thick forests, agriculture and fisheries have led to a local style of smithing that is characterized by rustic free forged knives and tools. Many Tosa knives are ryoba style; forged and ground symmetrically and are suitable for both right and left hand users.

Carbon steel will develop a patina with use, especially with acidic foods. Special attention is needed to keep from rusting. Do not leave wet. Hand wash & dry, no dishwasher. Hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain cutting boards are preferred; avoid bamboo and plastic cutting boards. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.

Free forged knives vary slightly in weights and measurements, expect small imperfections in finish or small amounts of waviness in blade or roughness in finish.

These knifes come from the maker with lacquer on the blade for corrosion protection during shipping. It can be removed using acetone or lacquer thinner (follow manufacturers instructions for use).

We can remove the lacquer prior to shipping for $10. Enter "Please remove lacquer" in the +Special Instructions on the Cart page and you will be invoiced separately via email. This could delay shipping by up to 5 days and won't be shipped until payment is made.
