This Office knife, also called Petty knife, is a typical Japanese cooking tool used on a daily basis for all smaller, precise cutting tasks in the kitchen: Peeling, pitting fruit, chopping herbs, creating garnishes. Once you start using it, you'll always want it within reach.
Handmade Masakage Yuki knives are made of carbon steel, clad with stainless steel. Therefore they combine chracteristics of carbon steel (an edge that stays sharp for a very long time and is easy to sharpen) and stainless steel (easy to maintain, reduced risk of rusting).
The handle is made of Magnolia wood and red pakka wood.
The knife has been named Yuki (Japanese word for "snow") because of the blade finish reminiscent of snow flakes.
All knives from Masakage are handmade by master blacksmiths of Takefu's village and hand sharpened by one of Japan's best knife sharpeners, Takayuki Shibata san. When these knives come out of their box, they have an amazing sharpness and will stay sharp for an extremely long time due to Shibata san's masterful technique. Alambika is extremely happy to import and retail Japanese knives (from Takefu village) in Canada. The whole kitchen knife collection can be seen and handled in our Montreal store.
