Korean Style kitchen knives

‘Korean Style’ Kitchen Knives

6” x 2.5”     ~   9″ x 2.5 ”      ~     10” x 2.5”
All knives have 5-1/4″ long handles. Brass is 3/4″ wide x 3/8″ thick. Thickness is .062 or 1/16th”.

     In the last 20 years, I have gotten some Japanese/Asian inspired designs from working chef’s, and feel it is time I put a page together showing those designs. I do not work with forged Japanese style blue steel, but with high carbon tool steel. It is the kind that is used in the blue steel ‘sandwich’ in some classic Japanese style food knives. It is used in the middle for the cutting edge.  Please specify when you order, if you want an Asian style handle or a western style handle. Default handles are Asian with all Asian designs.
