Sakai Shoryu presents the meticulously crafted 'Galaxy Series Mioroshi Kiritsuke Wa-Gyuto.' This knife is hand-forged using three-layered technique with the core of extremely hard, sharp, and rust-resistant Silver #3 steel.

Bearing the name 'Galaxy,' it undergoes a traditional special heat treatment for proper quenching. The blade is meticulously ground with whetstones up to #12000, achieving a mirror-like finish, snow-like brightness, and a silky-smooth cutting experience, while also possessing antibacterial properties.

The overall design of the knife demonstrates high functionality, with its Kiritsuke form creating a straighter blade line, providing the functionality of a Usuba suitable for peeling radishes.

The blade surface is 'Hiradukuri,' finished with the highly challenging '水鏡研' technique, which involves hand-polishing the entire blade surface to a mirror finish.

This top-tier blade is a rare gem in the 'Galaxy' series, distinguished by its unique and powerful 'Mioroshi Kiritsuke' form, setting it apart from the conventional 'Kiritsuke Gyuto.'"

How to Maintain Stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry to remove any moisture. Do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, it's advisable to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

Ensure you use the knives correctly, as they are designed for specific functions such as slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Avoid using them beyond their intended purpose, as this can lead to damage.
