Established in Sakai in 1901, Jikko's blacksmiths have a long history of designing and creating high quality knives that marry subtle design and excellent edge retention.
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 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.
The White #2 range is packaged in a red protective cardboard presentation box and each blade is wrapped in anti-corrosion paper and a then pages of the Japanese newspaper from the day it was finished and boxed up by the blacksmith.
