A knife capable of every job in the kitchen but with the lightness you'd expect of a much shorter knife.
The Aogami super blue ensures that the edge will last for a long time between sharpens and the stainless cladding means that it won't need as much care as a full carbon blade.
Like his other range, the Iron Clad these knives are spectacularly sharp out of the box which given that he is one of the best sharpeners in Japan is no surprise.
