Kiyotsuna created a strong alloy steel specially combined with stainless steel, high carbon steel, chrome, molybdenum and vanadium to make a knife that is sharp, rust-resistant and easy to sharpen. Handle is made of solid red oak. These sashimi knives are beveled on one side only. ( Photo is of the 210 mm/ 8-1/4″ ) Wipe dry after every use. Do not wash in dishwasher. I recommend using Camellia oil for maintenance and keeping the knife rust-free. Oil available for purchase separately.
