Product Description

100% Organic! Or very nearly.

Your Otsuka bannou will be unique - each and every one is the result of close creative collaboration between Cocoro Store and Otsuka Hamono. Cocoro meets kire-aji - heart meets cutting feel.

Over a number of years Cocoro Store's Tanaka san has developed an expertise in curing, crafting and fitting these natural Yamazakura mountain cherry handles. We've held a number of them and the comfort is almost spiritual. Overstatement? You'll see. Things are pretty great at the business end too. Pay attention to the deep blade path. Gives us goosebumps.

Please measure your palm and let us know your dominant hand so that Tanaka san may work his magic in selecting a handle just for you.

OK, now for the good news on availability. Usually the wait for one of Otsuka san's bannou knives is quite long. However we have a limited quantity on hand now and some more on the way. The wait will be limited to however long it takes for Tanaka san to create your handle. A couple of days? Not long, anyway.

    This is one of those knife acquisitions that you just feel special to own. I don't know if it could feel more handmade but maintain a high level of F&F. The grind is just excellent and you feel compelled to cut intricately with it with the scalpel-like tip. Highest recommendation.
