Besides the striking green handle, Sakai Kikumori's Aoko Warikomi gyuto makes an awesome all around chef knife. The 'Warikomi' or 'San Mai' style blade has Aogami #1 carbon steel sandwiched between a stainless steel cladding, combining a superior edge with ease of care. The riveted handle is dyed emerald green and has a decorative copper liner below the ferrule.

Sakai Kikumori is the flagship brand of Kawamura Hamono, producing top quality Japanese and Western style kitchen knives in Sakai, one of the oldest knife making centers in Japan.
