    Named Hikari after the Japanese word for "illumination," this masterfully crafted, lightweight chef's knife is distinguished by its stunning birch PakkaWood handle and "hornet's nest" pattern. Extraordinarily sharp with a long-lasting edge, the blade's micro serrations reduce friction for clean, effortless slicing that enhances the flavour of the food.

    • Known as a gyuto in Japan, this all-purpose knife is ideal for trimming and slicing meat and fish and works beautifully on fresh fruits and vegetables, too.
    • Dual-core stainless-steel blades are clad of 71 alternating micro layers of VG10 and VG2 high-carbon, high-chromium stainless-steel Damascus to create a "hornet's nest" pattern.
    • Exceedingly sharp cutting edges, hand-sharpened to a 16-degree angle, are long-lasting and easy to maintain.
    • Polished bolster promotes a comfortable chef's grip.
    • Durable birch PakkaWood handle resists moisture and bacteria and has a low-gloss finish.
    • Embossed endcap adds beauty and balance.
    • Handle offers a superb grip for both left- and right-handed users.
    • Handcrafted in Japan.
    • 7" blade.
    • 5" handle.
    • 6 oz.
    • Made in Japan.

    Use

    • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
    • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
    • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

    Care

    • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
    • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
    • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
    • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle or have it sharpened by a professional.
    • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
