Shigefusa knives are widely regarded as one of the all-time best kitchen knives on the market. The fit and finish is always flawless, the grinds even, with much thought and skill put into them, and the feel in-hand is second-to-none. They are made, by hand, by Mr. Tokifusa Iizuka and his two sons, who take absolutely no shortcuts, and display their understanding for what a truly great knife is, with each piece.
The edge steel is a "Mystery Swedish Carbon", which is expertly heated, quenched, tempered, you name it, to a level of hardness that allows for a very fine edge, great edge holding, and fantastic honing characteristics. The handle on this knife is made out of traditional ho wood, with a buffalo horn ferrule.
This knife is in virtually new
condition, and the kasumi finish is gorgeous! There's no better way to
get a knife that is hard to come by and in such fantastic condition,
aside from waiting for months on end, to get one from the man himself. Here's an opportunity to get one today!
