Kaiden W2 Honkasumi Series
Single bevel Japanese knives from Sakai region are famous amongst chefs the world over. While there are other regions that make single bevel knives, the benchmark has always been those forged and sharpened in Sakai.
While most in the know are fully aware of the hierarchy of steels (blue and white 1,2,3 etc) the differing grades of forging and sharpening finish are not so common knowledge.
Although different Sakai knife houses have differing designations for the lower grades most agree that the "Honkasumi" name should be kept for the highest finish blades forged and sharpened by the best and most experienced tradesmen. Kaiden Honkasumi follow this tradition by presenting professional knives of the highest calibre. A highly polished "ago", "uraoshi" finish and beautiful contrast in the hagane and jigane sets the standard for our W2 series.
Kaiden W2 knives are comparable to the top of the line "Masamoto KS Honkasumi" series (White 2, Shiro-ko) but with superior fit and finish, upgraded octagonal handle and without the premium pricetag of the Masamoto brands.
We are very fortunate to be able to present these knives to our customers.
- This is a single bevel knife (one sided edge) for left handed users only.
- Only sharpen on sharpening stones. This knife should NEVER be sharpened on a honing steel.
- This is a carbon steel knife. Keep dry and use camellia oil to prevent rust.
Left handed saya (knife sheath) for storage is included.
