Jikko 'Tokusei' 270mm yanagi. Carbon tool steel and iron blade. Japanese magnolia handle with plastic ferrule. A great economy series, the quality control and finish sharpening is the best we have found in this price range.
Jikko is a family business established in 1901 in Sakai City, Osaka and has cultivated extensive relationships with traditional craftsmen in Sakai.

Wonderful in house sharpening is done on all of their single bevel knives, and special care is taken to provide a flat, fine-polished ura (side opposite omote bevel)
