For your consideration is a 19th Century Japanese right-handed signed Takohiki chef’s fish slicing knife. The blade is hand forged with wood handle and scabbard. The knife is signed in on one side with writing on the opposite side. The knife measures 37.9 cm long (includes handle). The blade comes free from the handle and there are some losses and cracks in the scabbard.
The squared and beveled head is for deftly lifting slices of sashimi for arrangement on the plate. The length and single bevel blade allows the chef to make one smooth draw cleanly slicing raw fish or seafood without bruising or creating rough surfaces.
This knife likely originated from Japan’s Kanto region (Tokyo). The blade is in nice condition with good edge as shown. Just acquired from the estate of a Harford County, Maryland horse farm. A must have for the collection of a true Sushi lover.
