Yoshihiro Silver #3 Nashiji Wa-Petty Shitan Handle

$4,000

Description

The "Ginsan Nashiji Series" from Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro in Sakai City, Osaka, is crafted with a Ginsan steel core, wrapped in soft iron on the outer layer, and then forged with three layers by hand.

Ginsan steel excels in hardness, sharpness, and rust resistance, with an HRC of approximately 60-62, making it one of the sharpest materials in the stainless steel family.

The blade features a hand-forged "Nashiji" finish, imparting a rustic and Zen-like quality. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the Nashiji finish enhances the durability and wear resistance of the knife.

Additionally, it reduces the contact area between the ingredients and the blade, minimizing food adhesion and ensuring a smoother cutting process.

Handle: Octagonal Shitan wood handle with water buffalo ferrule
This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.

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.
