These special limited edition knives are hand engraved with an image of a tiger. Although tigers has never roamed Japan, their presence has been long known by the Japanese since ancient times. As a result their imprint is felt in the Japanese culture and in the language. Numerous Japanese pronouns that include the word Tiger exist in the Japanese language, and it most often expresses something that is incredibly strong and feared second to none. One of these are (Tora no shippo o fumu) which translates to stepping on a tigers tail. It describes an action that is extremely dangerous. Something that absolutely should not be taken lightly.

Our Yoshihiro Aonamiuchi Blue Steel knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Yew tree wooden handle affixed with a Water Buffalo horn bolster, and a protective wooden sheath called a Saya is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use.
