Harvest knife by Asano Mokkosho, with a wooden sheath. The harvest or gardening knife is sharpened along two edges of the rounded shape blade, which makes it easy to harvest vegetables, fruit, or herbs. It works especially well for cutting close to the soil, like with lettuce, celery or asparagus.
It comes with a wooden sheath which makes it safe and easy for carrying when hanging from a belt. The sheath has a small magnet to keep the blade in position. The blade is made of Japanese carbon steel and needs to be kept clean and dry after use. The wooden handle is oval shaped and with the double bevel blade it means it can be used left or right handed.
- Total cutting edge length: 170mm
- Knife length including handle: 260mm
