Morinoki General and Petty Knives
Each knife in the Morinoki series is lightweight and handmade with a design that balances functionality and warmth. Featuring thin, sharp blades, the multifunctional Morinoki general and petty knives pair beautifully to handle a wide range of tasks in the kitchen. In each, the stainless steel blade is set in a wood handle made out of Japanese zelkova, a tree often enjoyed as a bonsai. Detailed attention is given to creating the handle’s smooth, rectangular shape to ensure a comfortable grip.

Founded in 1980, the Shizu Hamono cutlery factory is located in Seki, Japan, a center of knife production for almost a millennium. The craftspeople at Shizu Hamono are focused on manufacturing traditional knives that explore innovative materials, technologies and designs.

The natural wood grain of each handle will vary slightly from piece to piece. The bread knife you receive may not be identical to the bread knife pictured.
Hand-wash only, drying immediately to preserve the shape and color of the handle. Treat the wood with your preferred wood conditioner, allowing enough time for absorption before its next use. Sharpen the blade as needed.
