Hitohira ST knives are a line of Japanese knives that are designed for both professional chefs and home cooks. The blades are made from high-quality VG10 steel core and Damascus cladding. VG10 is one of the best stainless steel used by Japanese craftsmen. The Hitohira ST knives are known for being beautiful knives that are easy to use, and great workhorses.
The core and cladding are very corrosion resistant, making them ideal for people who don’t want to deal with carbon steels - plus, they feature a beautiful Tsuchime (hammered) finish. The Japanese-style octagonal handles are made from Pakka and Pakka Ferrule, With an intermediate heat treatment (RHC 59-60) making the knife a bit more forgiving than some Japanese knives. Hitohira ST is easy to use and care for.
