Chroma Haiku 5 1/2 Inch Chef Knife
HAIKU, the traditional knife-line by Chroma Cutlery, Inc.
In Japan, the art of the sword smith has a long tradition. Today HAIKU knives are manufactured in small Japanese knife factories out of high-grade molybdenum and vanadium Steel. Borrowing from an ancient method, a bamboo peg ("mekugi") is inserted from the side into every HAIKU knife where the tang and handle are joined for added stability.
To this day, traditional sword smiths in Japan use this time-tested technique when crafting swords like those once used by the samurai of medieval Japan.
HAIKU - the Japanese knife with the honoki-wood handle.
Often Imitated - Only Authentic with the Falcon.
What does HAIKU mean?
The haiku is a highly artistic form of poetry, developed among the noble classes of Japan in the 16th century. Translated literally it means "witticism." The meter and content of a haiku are "sharpen to a fine edge."
It is written in a three-lined stanza, contains precisely seventeen syllables, and often relays a razor-sharp critique of current issues.

Nice quality glassware. The writing and fox has a good feel to it, and looks like it will not wear off any time soon. I bought 2 to give as gifts, and both recipients loved them.

I was very impressed with the design and material of the glass. The graphic is hilarious and got a great reaction from everyone in the room. Highly recommended!

The picture doesn't do these glasses any justice. They are adorable. I thought of lemonade and wedding gifts. The cleverness is in having two different shapes. And there are other versions available.
