Product Description

Two all-purpose kitchen knives in an attractive and practical paired set, beautifully presented in Tanegashima-themed gift-wrapping. Note these are not on sale, the prices listed above show the saving over buying both knives separately. In Japanese 'bannou' means ten thousand abilities, and it's essentially the same knife as a santoku or bunka-bocho.

The knives: Two black-forged bannou all-purpose kitchen knives, 15cm and 18cm blade lengths, shirogami#1/nantetsu warikomi blades. Cherry Handles. The warikomi "hagane inside/nantetsu outside" construction is the same principal as the Japanese sword but reversed, the low-hardness outer layer providing tensile strength. Over many years of sharpening these knives may become shorter and less tall in the blade but they will always retain their beauty and utility.

The 15cm bannou offers a good combination of light weight, small handle and effortless cutting. Terrific for fish. Cuts bread beautifully. 

The 18cm bannou has a larger handle and is in general a more substantial knife. Good for family meal preparation on a large cutting board. Ideal for processing large vegetables and small-portioning larger cuts of meat and fish.
