Hand forged iron clad carbon steel with a right biased convex ‘hamaguri’ grind (more convexity on the right hand outside of blade) making for fine precise work with excellent food release. The iron cladding has a fine hazy finish surface which also aides in food release.
We have been very impressed with this series from Hitohira. These Gorobei knives are thinly ground, light and nimble but still feel in charge during work. Their slightly taller blades allow for more clearance without feeling wobbly.
Available in Shirogami and Aogami.
