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.

The mirror finished Blue Paper (Aogami)  Steel Knife is made from famous Yasugi steel, known as prime high carbon steel, specifically developed for tools and knives.

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.

Traditional Japanese knife with a long and thin blade, which was originally used for cutting thin slices of raw fish - yes, sushi! Nowadays it can also be used for cutting large pieces of meat (especially for steaks) due to its long, thin blade. Typical Sashimi Bocho knives are between 240-360mm long and, according to some chefs, can be used for different kitchen tasks which require precision. Some of the distinguishing features of Sashimi Bocho knives are a Japanese handle and a chisel ground blade with an extremely small angle. Most famous Sashimi Bocho named Yanagiba. The expression “yanagiba” in Japan means “a willow”, as the blade of the knife resembles a willow leaf.

About the handle, the beautiful Buffalo Tsuba (bolster) equipped to the Ebony 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.)

Aogami No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

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.
