The Usuba is ideal for cutting vegetables and fruits which are served raw, because the thin and sharp blade produces cut surfaces with very little cell damage, and this minimizes the discoloration and change in flavor often caused by oxidation. The versatile middle section of the blade can be used for thinly slicing vegetables and also for performing the specialized Katsuramuki ("Rotary peeling”) technique.

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.

Sliver No.3 Stainless Steel
Sliver No.3 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is a very fine-grained Stainless Steel that can attain edge sharpness and edge retention comparable to some High Carbon Steels. It has even been used to create corrosion-resistant versions of Japanese traditional single bevel knives. It is very popular with both professionals and home cooks and is generally believed to be slightly easier to sharpen than VG10.
C 0.95-1.10 % | Cr 13.0-14.5 %

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.

Razor Sharp!

Got this knife as a gift for my brother. It’s a really gorgeous knife, razor sharp, and he loves it. Shipping was incredibly fast. This company is also really thoughtful and polite- a breath of fresh air, really.

Speeds up prep time!

Superbly sharp out of the box. I'm just an average cook at home, but this has changed the game for me. It cuts like a dream and I've been able to reduce the amount of time it takes to prepare meals. It is worth every dollar spent. The handle needed a tiny bit of sanding, but that didn't take much time or effort.

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.
