The Koutetsu knives from master sharpener Takayuki Shibata are expertly ground laser thin with perfect convexity, making for some of the smoothest cutting knives on the market.

These knives feature a R2 (SG2) powder steel core and stainless cladding. They are extremely low maintenance and non-reactive, but with high hardness, they will have excellent edge retention.

**Dry thoroughly after use. Left wet, stainless steel can dull quickly and develop pits in the edge. 

**To avoid chipping, keep away from bones, frozen foods or other hard foods and pits.
