This line has been named Yuki (snow) due to the frosty Nashiji finish, paired with the white magnolia handle. The splash of red pakka gives it a feeling of drama, like the final scene of Kill Bill: Volume 1.
Handmade with a hard Shirogami (white) carbon steel and clad in a softer stainless steel, the Yukis are a customer favourite. You get the superior edge retention, easy sharpening and a silky smooth cut of a carbon-steel blade, with only minor maintenance required on the edge of the knife. It’s a genius way to make a knife. Keep the edge dry and you'll be singing.
These blades are forged by Yoshimi Kato in Takefu Knife Village.
