In Stock Item: 240mm Shirogami Chef Knife with black matte finish
Designed with the professional chef in mind, all serious cooks will love this knife!
Hand-forged in Japan, this knife is in the traditional Japanese style, but has the added benefit of having clad stainless steel sides and a double bevel edge, meaning it can be used equally well by either right or left-handed chefs or home cooks.
The 240mm (approx. 9.5") blade has a shirogami carbon core for incredible sharpness and ease of sharpening. Stainless clad sides have a beautiful black matte finish.
It has a traditional 'wa' style hidden tang design and is comfortable for long hours of use.
We have added a handle that combines a traditional look with a modern touch. This faceted handle is made from exotic Hawaiian curly koa wood with a Mozambique ebony bolster and end cap at the bottom of the handle. Black and white accents set off the handle beautifully.
Please note that the blade edge is shirogami carbon steel, so extra maintenance is required to prevent either rust or dark spots just like you may remember from old knives your mom or grandma would have used prior to stainless steel becoming popular. We are happy to answer your questions about how to maintain and care for this amazing knife.
To those of you who love to protect the environment, you can do no better than choose a Salter Fine Cutlery knife. The wood in this knife has been sustainably harvested and our curly koa wood is reclaimed. The handle has been handmade in a small shop using only natural sunlight for a light source and no large machinery.
