Baishinshi Kiridashi Carving Knife


A traditional all-purpose knife used for woodworking and bamboo crafting. Comes in a handle and scabbard made of Hoh (magnolia). The blade is beveled only on one side creating a thinner edge compared to a knife beveled on both sides, allowing for extremely fine cuts. Only the beveled side requires sharpening, requiring less maintenance.

Baishinshi is a brand produced by a blacksmithing family who has been forging carving knives and chisels for more than 250 years. Currently, the 7th generation took over as "Baishinshi Kunimitsu", the family blacksmith name.
