Houcho is Japanese for "knife" and is Satake's best selling knife series. Despite the low price and the simple design, Houcho knives have a razor sharp and feather-light edge that will last for generations to come as long as the knife is taken care of. The focus of the Houcho knife series is a very high quality blade with a simple but functional shaft.
Knife blade made of Hi Carbon Steel
