Superb fit and finish quality as you would expect from the ginsan range of knives and the kiritsuke shaped tip add an additional bit of versatility for intricate tasks.
Please note: This particular knife is a "new old stock" piece so comes in Hado's previous packaging prior to their rebrand which is a plain card storage box. The knife itself is brand new and fitted with an elongated oval walnut handle.
