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.
Protection & care for this knife
We recommend showing this beautiful knife off by storing it on a magnetic rack or block but if you do need to keep it safely out of sight, please note that it comes with a wooden presentation box and cardboard sleeve for the blade inside it already.
If you still need a guard, the santoku sized blade guard is the best fit for this knife.
