The Japanese Mikikicchan knives are versatile and precise tools, ideal for working with detail and precision. Their rounded shape fits the hand to prevent fatigue during prolonged use. In addition, they are made of high-quality materials and are resistant to wear.
They are made of aogami steel, also known as blue steel. It is an alloy that contains low amounts of phosphorus and sulfur, and contains tungsten and chromium that are added to make the temperature of resistance less critical. In this way, the resistance to wear is increased. It achieves longer durability for the edge and greater flexibility.
To keep the Japanese Mikikicchan knives in good condition, it is recommended to clean the chips and dust after each use and use a cloth with camellia oil or antioxidant to prevent oxidation. It is not recommended to put acid on the knives, but if you do, it is important to clean them carefully and promptly.
Features of the Japanese Mikikicchan knives:
The set of 6 Japanese Mikikicchan knives consists of the Yoko, Hira, Ken, Kuri, Mikaduki and Migi knives.
The Japanese Yoko knife uses the standard form in carving knives. It adapts to variations of use, from wood, bamboo, paper work, to small crafts so that it can be used as a first knife. It is an ideal knife for hard-to-reach places such as the Zoque part in the handle.
The Japanese Hira knife has a flat shape on the top. It is suitable for carving flat wood. Thanks to its thin blade on the top, it can also be used for carving in small spaces.
The Japanese Ken knife, which means "wide sword" or "Western sword", has two sharp edges on the left and right and is independent of the dominant hand, so it can be used in areas with height and width limitations by changing from left to right hand. However, the top edge of Ken is slightly more prone to cracking and is more difficult to sharpen than the Yoko knife due to its thin top edge, which is more difficult to maintain in balance during sharpening.
The Japanese Kuri knife is an essential tool for any luthier or craftsman working with wood to build instruments. Its slender and pointed shape is ideal for working in small areas and for detail work.
The Japanese Mikaduki knife has a small, curved blade and is used for carving curved or rounded surfaces.
The Japanese Migi knife is used for carving and shaping small, detailed areas. It is often used to make intricate cuts and shapes in thin materials.
The set of 6 Japanese knives is a set of high-quality and durable tools that will become an indispensable tool in any workshop.
