Ginsan Sanmai with Walnut Handle - Petty
The GW Series is a perfect example of the Japanese design philosophy shibui, a balance of simplicity and complexity. While the GW series is not adorned with decorative elements such as hand-hammered tsuchime or a Damascus finish, a simple elegance creates a powerful appearance. The 3-layer blade with a Ginsan (silver-3) core is thin, strong, and precise; and the octagonal walnut handle provides a comfortable grip.
Hand engraved with the Kikuichi chrysanthemum logo.
