Konosuke Mirror - Trending

This knife is a mirror. Really, it is a mirror. It's hard to take a picture of a mirror but trust us. It is the deepest mirror you will see on a knife.

This line is made exclusively for Knifewear.

There is shiny and then there are mirrors. These are the best mirror finish I've ever seen on a blade. They really are mirrors. If you need flash these are for you. My #1 choice for TV appearances. Konosuke Knives are a great little knife company based in Sakai, a suburb of Osaka. These knives are made with SANDVIK 19C27 steel. With proper sharpening technique the sharpness can equal the silky feel of carbon steel knives. The blades are stainless therefore no need worry about oxidizing. With their extreme lightness these knives feel like the Japanese knives of the future. Thin means sharp, and these are in supermodel territory.

These are the Japanese knives of the future. Really. Thin and light is an understatement, these are ridiculously panthin and light. Capable of extreme sharpness and a breeze to re-sharpen, these blades feel like a scalpel for the kitchen. In fact they are so light you may think they are a flimsy joke, but you would be dead wrong. These are probably the most precise knives I’ve ever used. I’ve often said they cut like a laser and no one has ever challenged that claim. Wow.   

These knives are finished with a Japanese style, octagon shaped hoo wood handle with a pakka wood collar. This is the traditional Japanese handle. This type of handle creates a knife with overall lightness and a blade forward balance. I love a light knife as one does not become fatigued with heavy use and they are more precise. These knives are also accompanied by a Saya: a traditional Japanese wooden case that provides an easy and classy method of storage.

The mirror polish is done by hand and is the deepest mirror finish I have ever seen. These are simply striking.
