This is a fantastic butcher knife for the home cook or professional chef looking for an easy to maintain, high performing and good looking chefs knife. The VG-10 steel won't rust or discolour even if it's not wiped down immediately after use and it has very good edge retention. The wavy damascus pattern blends beautifully with the tsuchime "hand hammered" finish and is further complemented by the brown pakka wood handle. The triple riveted handle ensures this knife will stand up to the toughest kitchen conditions and is comfortable to grip.
Tsunehisa seeks to make great knives at affordable prices and while they aren't completely handmade (They are machine forged), many of the knife making processes are done by hand giving it the fantastic fit & finish, high performance, and fantastic consistency. These knives are fantastic for the home cook or the professional looking for fantastic performance, easy maintenance and beautiful aesthetics.
The saber is a great versatile butchers knife shape that works well for breaking down fish, or larger pieces of meat like primals. The long swept profile also makes it excellent for things like trimming excess fat and silverskin of briskets, tenderloins and more!
