Each "Hayami" handle is truly unique. It is made from Stabilized Wood, which is wood that has been impregnated with a chemical stabilizing solution.
The purpose of stabilizing wood is to make it more durable and less prone to warping or cracking than natural, untreated wood.
The Kiritsuke can be used to either "rock chop", "push cut" and "pull cutting". Kiritsuke knives are generally available in a variety of different styles, but we have forged ours with a "clipped point" as the thinner tip helps with delicate works
