Korean Kitchen Knife, Small

$ 120.00

Master Shin In-Young is the head blacksmith of Master Shin's Anvil and owns the oldest blacksmith shop in South Korea, established in 1845. At 13 he began his apprenticeship and at 17 he became a master, an unprecedented achievement even today.

Using a cylinder-shaped Chosen Anvil from the dynasty, he hand-forges his museum-quality tools individually. Following old-world techniques and traditional minimalistic design, Master Shin creates high-quality, functional pieces that are also durable works of art. This multi-use knife can be used for any daily task in the kitchen from chopping an apple to trimming meat. 

 

  • Handle is crafted from oak wood, shade-dried for years to achieve the correct weight, stability and water resistance. 
  • Blade is made from the strong steel used for railroad tracks.

  • Care: No need to sharpen before 2-3 years of regular use. After which point, sharpen by hand, using a honing stone. Avoid use on hard surfaces. Wipe clean with a soft cloth or use water only. Clean and dry thoroughly to prevent rust. To store, dry and lightly oil the surface.
