Kanetsune Whittling and Wood Carving Set is a purpose made whittling knife set – made in Japan by one of the country’s oldest and most revered knife companies…all in a discreet cotton tie wrap.
Handles are in creamy magnolia wood – witty because magnolia is often used as the object of crafting.
Ten differently shaped blades are in blue aagami carbon* steel by Hitachi Metal. This is a direct descendant of steel used in the centuries-old Samurai sword tradition. It features small amounts of chromium and tungsten, and is used in high-end Japanese kitchen knife and tool production. It’s famed for holding an edge, and is easily sharpened …again and again.
- Made in Japan
*please note that carbon steel is the connoisseur’s metal, and they know to dry it after use to avoid rust…
