We’re sure that you know the parts of a Japanese knife, don’t you?

But in this article, we show you the whole picture of the Japanese knife to prevent the confusion.

Because the name of the parts is sometimes called in Japanese words when you talk about the Wa-bocho (Japanese traditional kitchen knives)
We hope that you’ll check again the corresponding words in English just in case.

If you have any question, please feel free to contact us anytime.

Thank you for reading and best regards!

“Hocho” represents Made-in-Japan (Sushi / Sashimi) Kitchen Knives,
