This knife is both strong and supple, boasts strength and flexibility and is handmade by a generations’ old forge. The handles ar e made from cherry and if you go to the workshop in person you can choose the cherry tree branch that best fits your hand and have a custom fitted handle put to the knife.
[Producer’s Remarks]Many in Tottori carry on the traditions of the Japanese folk art movement and that is reflected in the quality of the products. I’ve grown attached to the handle, which fits right in the palm of my hand, and I maintain and use it with care. The blade is not only sharp, but it even teaches me to live mindfully. (Shigeki Hattori)
