Kitaoka Migaki Deba 165mm
Hideo Kitaoka hails from Echizen, Japan and specializes in forging traditional single bevel knives. His Migaki series is a great demonstration of high quality steel on a budget.
Forged from Shirogami (white) #2 steel, these blades take very sharp edges and hold them for a long time. These knives are finished with a d-shape magnolia handle.
