The handle is in the traditional octagonal style and is comprised of black and rose wood.
Each knife comes with a beautiful lacquer wood gift box and wrapped in one of six Furoshiki designs.
Japanese VG-10 Steel
In our pursuit for the best quality material, we have settled for nothing but the best, and sourced imported Japanese VG-10 Damascus steel. This steel, notorious for its hardness and ability to retain its edge is world renowned among knife makers. The steel is so prized in fact that it is made only by a single forge in the Fukui prefecture in Japan, the legendary Takefu Steel Company.
Due to the exclusivity and quality of VG-10 Steel, there has inevitably been knock off and reproductions of real Japanese Takefu VG-10 Steel. Thousands of knives endorsing "VG-10 Steel" circulate the market to this day.
Here at Kitsune Cutlery, we have taken the utmost precaution and care to ensure that this does not happen to our consumers. We have partnered with a manufacturer known to carry real Takefu VG-10 Steel imported from Japan with the credentials to prove it. At Kitsune Cutlery, the standard is paramount, and we have gone to great lengths to ensure it is met with every knife.
THE ART OF FUROSHIKI
Each Kitsune Chef knife is meticulously hand-wrapped in the traditional Japanese gift giving style of Furoshiki.
The Furoshiki wrap can be repurposed into countless different styles - such as a shoulder bag, picnic basket, or any type of carry cloth.
The Furoshiki wrap comes in one of any six beautiful designs.
