We’re pleased to announce that the special feature page of Honyaki knives has been released with some new cool items.

Honyaki knives are forged solely from one material: high-carbon steel (called “Hagane”). Generally the Hagane is White steel(Shirogami) or Blue steel(Aogami). The structure method used to make Honyaki knives is similar to that used to make traditional Japanese swords, which is a very difficult and long process.

After being heated treated, the steel is hammered repeatedly to form the shape of a blade and evenly distribute the carbon and chromium molecules. It requires the precise techniques of skilled and experienced craftsmen.
