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.

Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.
