*CUSTOM BACK ORDER ONLY. This beautiful Kengata Gyomen Shiage Honyaki Sakimaru Takobiki was made by one of the best Yoshihiros knife masters in Sakai, Japan. The hamon (pattern of waves on the blade) was specially designed as the Japanese Fuji Mountain with a full moon. This knife is not only a beautiful piece of art, it is a one of a kind.

Description

Our handmade Yoshihiro Honyaki knives are handcrafted with extraordinary skill, forged of the highest quality steel according to the traditional methods used in ancient Japanese sword making by our master artisans of incomparable skill, some of which have over 50 years of experience. Honyaki means true forged and represents the highest level in Japanese knives, requiring experienced master knife smiths, versed in the traditional art of sword making. A single piece of White Steel #1 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 66, is heated in hearths that reach temperatures in the thousands and then quenched in cool water for hardness creating knives of the highest caliber, blending aesthetics and performance.

Our Yoshihiro Honyaki knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted premium Ebony wood handle of the highest quality affixed with a Water Buffalo horn bolster, and a protective wooden sheath called a Saya is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. The Sakimaru Takobiki is a long slicing knife that was designed to slice paper thin slices of fish for sashimi and its round sharp tip is useful for cutting the long tentacles of the Sashimi. The beauty of its elegant thin blade is its ability to slice through an ingredient in long uninterrupted strokes, preserving its integrity and freshness. The Takobiki is thinner than a Yanagi and is unique tool for prepping delicate ingredients. The Takobiki Sakimaru is also valued for the its effectiveness at cutting perfect sushi rolls and the way the rounded tip can be angled along the cutting board for clean slices. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
