The Yoshikuni series of Yoshihiro are the vanguard of Japanese cutlery, representing the highest level of craftsmanship. Forged by master craftsman and finished with the ancient techniques of Japanese sword polishing, our Yoshikuni Mizu Yaki Hongasumi knives are unparalleled in their performance. Mizu Yaki is a meticulous process of pure water quenching that draws out the hardness of refined steel while infusing it with enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions. Hongasumi translates as true mist and refers to the beautiful mist like patterns on the blade that are formed when White Steel #2 (HRC 63 to 64) is forged with iron.

Our Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki White Steel Hongasumi Yanagi Yoshikuni Series is complimented with a traditional Japanese handcrafted Magnolia wood handles affixed with a double Water Buffalo horn bolster. A protective wooden sheath called a Saya encases each knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. The Yanagi is a long slicing knife designed to cut thin slices of fish for sushi and sashimi. The beauty of its elegant thin blade is in its ability to slice through ingredients in long uninterrupted strokes, preserving their integrity and freshness. The Yanagi is one of the most essential of traditional Japanese knives and is a powerful component in the repertoire of many chefs.
