The Mukimono Hōchō is small knife with a thin blade that is commonly used for the Japanese art of Mukimono (Creating decorative garnishes), and also Kazari-giri (“Decorative vegetable carving”). However, it is often used as a small general-purpose knife for peeling and cutting fruits and vegetables since it can perform these tasks well.

The Mukimono Hōchō has blade geometry similar to the Usuba, but it is ground much thinner and is smaller in size. Similar to the Kiritsuke, it also has a 'clipped point’ / ‘reverse tanto tip’ that is primarily intended for making the decorative cuts mentioned above, but it is also useful for any task which requires the precise cutting of soft ingredients.

Mukimono Hōchō are made in blade lengths ranging from 75mm up 210mm, with blade lengths from 150mm to 180mm typically recommended.

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.

Migaki (Polished) line of knives feature beautiful edge geometry and are quite thin behind the edge and at the spine. They have an excellent cutting feel and are light and feel very nimble and comfortable in the hand.

It’s a very good knife. It’s got eye appeal and for the price it’s excellent value for money!

Well made- good fit and finish, and sharp. I use for just about everything except when I need something heavier and larger. The steel is "good enough"- easy to sharpen and stays sharp for a reasonable period of time

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
