Ryoba Kawa Hagi 120mm Skinning Knife Aogami 2 Ho-PC Handle

Skinning knives are a specialty of Tosa blacksmiths, Shikoku’s forests have an abundance of wild pigs and many avid hunters.

approx 83 grams 125mm cutting edge, 38mm wide at widest point, tapering from 3mm thick, 245mm overall. Free forged knives vary slightly

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.

We have been very happy with the quality for the price and their old style country feel.

This is a reactive carbon steel. It should be mentioned that extra care is required, as the knife is not stainless and should be dried immediately after use. It will develop a dark patina with usage, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.
