An excellent right handed single bevel slicer perfect for home or professional use.

First Impressions

Forged in a traditional way, the kasumi boasts an impressive edge right out of the box and is a good workhorse option particularly for busy professional kitchens.


The migaki finish and smooth taper from shinogi down to the cutting edge are simple design and the machi gap to the magnolia handle finish the traditional look.

In Hand

A good amount of weight in the slicer is appreciated and will help guide the knife through smooth slices and there is a slightly rough finish in and around the heel which isn't unexpected in a range at this price point where more effort had gone into the blade edge finish but doesn't present any problems with comfort while holding the knife.


White #3 clad in soft iron is a durable and retains a good edge.

The magnoloia handle on the knife is untreated and while not essential, you might prefer sealing it with a food safe mineral oil to help protect it over time.

Ease of Care

Please refer to our carbon steel care instructions to keep it in best condition.

While you're here, why not add a carbon steel care kit to your order.

Our Verdict

Great value traditional white steel knives from a long established company designed for home and professional use.

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.
