For the best in hand-forged, functional artistry, this small knife will be sure to please. The superior quality Japanese hand-forged R2 stainless steel blade features a hammered finish. 

Use as a general small utility, steak or sandwich knife. 

R2 powder metal die stainless steel is among the best steels for knives available anywhere in the world. It has excellent edge holding abilities and is easy to sharpen. It is lightweight, but very sharp and perfect for precise cuts for sandwiches, slicing tomatoes, celery, fruit or any small job.

The blade has a hammered finish, with the damascus layers visible near the edge of the blade. Each hammer mark has been made by hand with a small hammer during the hand-forging process and have been signed in kanji by the blade maker in Japan.

Completely handmade, this knife is  full-tang, with steel running throughout the handle for extra strength and a western (European-style) look and feel. It was made with a solid piece of R2 steel. It has NOT had the handle made from any other less expensive steels. No parts have been welded together like is customary in production knives.

The blade was made in Japan to our own design specifications and the handle made in Hawaii by Gregg Salter of Salter Fine Cutlery.

Other features include a stainless steel bolster, plus black and white accents between the koa wood and the bolster.
