Ashi’s Swedish stainless steel knives are some of the lightest, thinnest and easiest to sharpen knives we have come across. Their cutting feel is excellent due to top quality hand grinding, creating convexity on the side of the knife, and making them extra thin behind the edge. Ideal for a home cook or professional that needs a low maintenance and high performance blade.
Ashi Hamono was established in 1948 in Sakai City Japan; a major center of traditional knife making. Ashi makes knives utilizing a one piece of steel (rather than forge laminated 2/3 layer blade), called zenkou construction. Ashi’s Ginga line is famous for it’s thinness and precision, utilizing top quality carbon and stainless steels. These knives have an excellent fit and finish, from their grinding to heat treatment and hafting.
