In return, owners are rewarded with a sharpness and keenness of edge that only carbon can deliver. The knives are finished with a traditional three step Japanese sharpening process. The outstanding blade is paired with a hand shaped Grenadille wood handle, brass rivets, and a Bob Kramer mosaic pin.
