The Honyaki knives can only be made by a few skilled craftsmen in Japan in same method as traditional Japanese sword. It is an art of craftsmanship with Japanese traditional techniques, and features outstanding sharpness and durability. The production is very small, due to the difficulty and time-consuming process.

Its blade is made through Honyaki process, so the edge gets very hard and retains its sharpness for a long time.

The honyaki knives cannot be mass-produced. They are primarily for professional chefs and for the most important person because of the highest quality traditional-style Japanese knives.

Kiritsuke is a general purpose kitchen knife as Santoku and it used to be just as popular as the Santoku, but has become less commonplace in recent years. With its wider blade, the Kiritsuke knife is suitable for cutting vegetables, while the triangle-shaped tip area is particularly useful when cutting fish and meats.

About the handle, the beautiful Buffalo Tsuba (bolster) equipped to the Magnolia Wood handle represent high-quality and excellent durability, that means made for professional originally. The handle shape of Japanese-Style Octagonal figure fits better comfortably to your hand.
(*Please be noted that the buffalo tsuba (bolster) is a natural product that may possibly be different from the image in color.)

Shirogami No.2 has minimal impurities and a very fine grain structure, so it is ideal for fine cutting tools such as Japanese traditional-style knives. Despite being a ‘simple’ carbon steel, Shirogami No.2 has very good edge retention and it is also very easy to re-sharpen. Recommended for first-time users of Japanese traditional-style knives.

A GIFT TO MY DAUGHTER

I bought this knife for my daughter and son-in-law's wedding anniversary. They were looking for a knife that could be an all around knife in the kitchen. When I saw this knife and read its description I said, this is the knife for them. They knew that I got them a real good knife because I've purchased 2 Santoku knives from Musashi. And you sell excellent knives. She told me that she loves that knife.

Product features

Handmade Forging

By applying the traditional forging method, the molecules of iron, which is the material, are finely arranged, leading to the completion of a "live kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for molding is repeated three or four times, and before carbon is released from the steel and the original power is not lost, it is quickly shaped into a blade and creates durability.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important for achieving the best sharpness. Produces uncompromising sharpness that can be sharpened at our own factory with blades.

Handle

We place the highest priority on a shape that is durable, luxurious, easy to grip, and does not get tired even after long-term use.
