The Tadafusa Hocho Kobo range of household knives combines a contemporary look with the traditional hand forged knife making techniques of the company. The HK-6 ajikiri knife (the HK-6 is also referred to as small deba) is a single-bevel knife, making it ideal for right handed cooks who wish to fillet fish cleanly and precisely.
The blade combines SLD steel which provides a sharp cutting edge with a stainless steel coating for the body. The chestnut handle is heat treated in order to prevent shrinkage and to increase bacterial resistance.
Dimensions: 100mm blade length; 210mm total length
