Hitohira Imojiya TH Carbon Honesuki Maru Pakka Handle


Click here to include a sheath.

Made from SK tool steel, these knives are easy to sharpen and retain their edge very well thanks to their hand-forging quality. SK tool steel is commonly used as working steel and is not often forged by hand for kitchen knives, but boasts excellent hardening properties and can take on a very fine edge with sharpening.

Maru means rounded, referring to the streamlined profile of the blade and its absence of a choil. Also known as a Hankotsu, it was traditionally used with a reverse grip by butchers carving hanging carcasses. However, it can excel equally well with carving tasks in the home kitchen and boast a superb in-hand feel. For those looking for a knife to portion meat off the breasts of whole chickens or larger cuts of pork and lamb, this is an excellent knife for the job.
