Kuro-uchi Ajikiri is a small kitchen knife, suitable for all sorts of cutting tasks. In Japan it is mostly used for cutting smaller fish. Kuro-uchi series knives are traditional Japanese rustic knives. Its price is very affordable for the quality of a hand-forged knife. It is suitable for the first purchase of a traditional Japanese knife. The blade is forged in SUJ-2 steel, which offers incredible capacities, hardness is 63-64 HRC, and at the same time, the knife is very easy to resharpen. The blade needs some extra care. After the use rinse it well and dry it. The name of kuro-uchi refers to the final look of the blade, which is unprocessed on the top and has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade.
The handle is made from Magnolia wood with a plastic ferrule. The handle doesnothave the red sticker applied to it.
Sharp as FUCK. These are the real thing. Not your mom's tomato "crushing" knife!
