This is a high-carbon stainless steel chef knife designed to cut produce and soft meats..

Pros: Sharpness, edge retention, ambidextrous handle, easy to keep sharp.

Cons: Fragile

Tsunehisa is the factory brand of Hokiyama Cutlery in Tosa, Japan. Many other knifemakers outsource their production to Hokiyama, and we buy their factory brand to pass on savings to you.

The blades are clad Ginsan (Silver 3) Japanese steel. 

The handles are riveted brown pakka wood scales.

The best sharpening tools for Japanese knives are leather strops and fine whetstones.

Japanese chef knives are brittle and the blades can chip if not handled carefully. High Carbon steel chef knives can rust and corrode if not dried promptly and kept dry.
