Item purchased will look different than item pictured due to variations in materials.



The Tsunehisa line of knives are hand-made in Tosa, Japan, by a small team of skilled craftsmen.

The blades are 3-layer stainless-clad Aogami Super (Blue Super) high-carbon steel with kurouchi (pronounced kooo-ro-ooo-chi, translates to "black hammer") finish. These blades are thicker than average and have a fairly pronounced wedge grind.

The handles are oval shaped rosewood with pakka wood ferrule. Wa-handle knives have a more neutral balance than Half-tang knives.

Japanese chef knives are brittle and are designed for cutting soft tissue foods. High Carbon steel chef knives can rust if not kept dry.
