Hand forged in Vietnam with carbon steel and handled with local hardwoods, these mono-steel knives cut nicely and sharpen super easily. These rustic style knives are a great value, it should be mentioned that they have slight imperfections; edges are not perfectly straight, sharp corners etc. Not withstanding these are enjoyable thin springy carbon steel knives.
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.
Please note, tip of Sakimaru slicers are not sharpened
