The excellent craft, fit and finish on this knife combine to make a highly versatile and thicker petty ideal for those who prefer a slightly weightier than typical all-rounder.

First Impressions

Excellent sharpness and grind right out of the box and the Silver 3 steel core provides a wicked edge that will glide through food with ease.


It's subtle but has a wonderful depth to it and aesthetically the Ginsan is a a fine looking knife. The brushed finish and polished edge form a lovely line showing the merging of core and cladding steel.


The silver 3 core is comparable to many carbon steels for sharpness and edge retention and will keep an impressive edge sharpness.

Ease of Care

Normal instructions apply as always - rinse and dry after use and no dishwashers but other than that you've got a nice low maintenance stainless knife thanks to the silver 3 core and stainless cladding. Easy!
