Hitohira Imojiya OKD 150mm Honesuki Kaku VG-1

$120.00

Nicely ground and finished mono steel VG1 stainless with rosewood handle. All the merits of a classic stainless mono steel but with better edge formation and easier sharpening than many plus an excellent cutting feel with these fine convex surface hamaguri grinds. 

This is the thinnest ground honesuki kaku that we carry, it is very precise and nimble and does not do well with twisting on or hacking at thick bones. Best for someone with previous honesuki kaku experience. 

Ground at the workshop involved in the old Masakane production in Seki these are nicely ground and finished. This steel can be somewhat prone to chipping if mistreated but the payoff in ease of sharpening and cutting feel is worth it.
