Product Info

"Shi Hou" translates to phoenix - a fitting meaning, because like the mythical animal, these limited knives are forged by flames and enchant with a melancholic look and fiery cutting edge. An absolute highlight that it not only makes collector's hearts beat faster, but sets a new standard in Japanese knives.
