100% Organic! Or very nearly.
Your Otsuka petty knife 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.
Check some of our other listings for Otsuka san's knives to get a feel for the variety of handle we supply. By all means let us know your preference if you're guided by aesthetics; please also 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:
