Kikuichi Tatsutogi 100mm Kawamuki
With its short blade, the kawamuki was designed for in-hand tasks such as peeling and garnish preparation. It has a short, double-beveled edge like a Western paring knife.
Tatsutogi is Kikuichi's most cost-effective traditional single bevel series. Hand-forged in the sword-making tradition from two pieces of carbon steel, the tatsutogi series also features many uncommon, specialty knife shapes. With a soft steel as the edge, these are easier to sharpen, making them good beginner Japanese knives.
