Made in Sakai, Osaka
A knife for slicing sashimi from fish fillet. The long single bevel blade enables to slice fish fillet in one stroke without damaging the surface and creates a smooth texture. You slice by pulling the knife toward you as you cut. It can slice not only fish but also meat as well.
Aogami carbon steel is a type of alloy steel created by adding Chrome and Tungsten to Shirogami carbon steel. It has high wear resistance and can maintain sharpness for longer time. Aogami No.1 is the hardest and has prolonged sharpness among other Aogami steels. Due to the hardness, please note this blade is likely to chip and difficult to sharpen compared to Shirogami carbon steels. Since it requires some skill to handle this blade, we recommend it for customers who are used to Japanese carbon steel knives.
- NOT dishwasher safe
- To prevent rust, thoroughly wipe the knife after washing.
- Apply a thin layer of oil on the blade before storing to protect it from humidity and make it more rust resistant.
