Kenmuki Knives are single bevel Japanese style knives for chopping and peeling vegetables. They are mainly used for "Katsuramuki," which is thinly peeling vegetables like Daikon white radish and carrots, to make "Tsuma," which is very fine julienned garnish for Sashimi. Kenmuki Knives are thinner than Usuba Knives and have a sharp pointy K tip.

About steel type:
White Steel No.2 is a high carbon steel developed by Hitachi Special Stainless Steel. This steel is standard and most commonly used for Japanese style knives such as Sashimi and Deba knife for long time. White Steel No.2  gives a very sharp edge and has very good edge retention. It is also very easy to re-sharpen. It will rust if it is left wet or left in contact with something containing any amount of moisture, so need to wipe and dry completely after using. For longer storage protect with a film of oil to avoid lasting. Recommended for first time of Japanese style high carbon steel  knife users.
