Ginsanko blends traditional methods of knife making with modern metallurgy. Ginsanko is a breakthrough in the incorporation of high carbon steel and stain resistant metallic elements. With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 63-64, they offer a rare combination of traditional Japanese high carbon knives with stainless steel properties. Hongasumi translates as true mist and refers to the beautiful mist like patterns on the blade that are formed when Ginsanko (HRC 63-64) is forged with iron. Ginsanko steel is forged by our master artisans to create traditional Japanese knives of the highest quality that can provide peace of mind in high paced environments.
This Yoshihiro Ginsan Yanagi knife is complimented with a traditional Japanese style Premium Ebony handle equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a “Saya,” which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use.
The Yanagi Kiritsuke is a long slicing knife that was designed to slice thin slices of fish for sushi and sashimi, and is one of the most essential of traditional Japanese knives and is a powerful component in the repertoire of many chefs. The Yanagi Kiritsuke is slightly heavier than the Yanagi with a blade that is wider and a spine that is thicker. The sword tip helps balance the weight of the knife and is recommended for chefs who are interested in a Yanagi but prefer a heftier knife.
