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.

This is an Eel knife in the common style from the Kyoto region.
