The striking attention to detail in the blade design and finish combine with a beautfully fitted Studio Khii handle to make this an unmissable range that is well deserving of it's excellent reputation. Konosuke are renowned for their beautifully finished knives, from the blade itself to the Studio Khii handles they add to their knives. There is a real attention to detail that we totally love in all their knives and these are no different.
The steel is always kept a secret but we have been reliably informed that this steel leans more towards carbon steel than the GS+ semi-stainless that we also sell. The core is sandwiched between a softer stainless cladding and has a hammered blacksmith finish. The handle is octagonal made from enju and maguro wood by Studio Khii.
