Evaluation

This product is the fruit of a collaboration with knife-makers in Takefu, Echizen City, Fukui Prefecture, a traditional manufacturing center. The pointed blade, designed to be suitable for a range of uses, goes nicely with the feel of the newly styled handle. We found the manufacturer's comment that “20 years of technical exchange have brought a lot of new ideas to Solingen” very interesting as a suggestion for a potential trend in the globalization of regional industries.
