Based on the Samurai tradition and the Japanese ritual of the sword-smith, Haiku knives are made in artisan workshops in Japan. Haiku are crafted from modern high-grade steel which produces blades of outstanding durability and extraordinary sharpness. The handle is based on a traditional Japanese design - a "mekugi" (a bamboo peg) secures the wooden handle to the blade providing exceptional stability.  Haiku are an excellent blade for intensive everyday use, part of the natural wooden handle is left un-waxed allowing the wood to expand slightly, this maintains a consistently tight bond between the tang and the handle.
