White #2

Supremely understated, the sandblasted finish of the cladding steel gives a satin look that offsets the high polish of the cutting edge to create a classic looking Japanese knife.

There's a lot to like about Jikko knives and the White #2 range is a strong example of their eye for subtle design and performance. The simple look of the blade created with their hatsuke finishing method, an HRC of 61:62 and paired with a magnolia wood and buffalo ferrule create a knife that performs every bit as well as it looks.

One thing that has separated Jikko from many of the other manufacturers is their “hatsuke” method. “Hatsuke” is a proprietary finishing method used to give the blades a finer angle. Jikko claims that their knives are sharper and at the same time remain sharper for longer.

The “hatsuke” method was developed after years of research and Jikko believes that they have managed to find the perfect blade angle to give their knives an even balance of sharpness and edge retention.

Why buy this range

What you get
