The most versatile and one of the most popular knives that a cook can have today is a Japanese all-purpose chefs knife known as a Santoku knife. Santoku is Japanese for three virtues referring to the shape of the blade which comprises aspects of the traditional vegetable knife , Usuba, and Gyuto in one knife making it a favorite among chefs and cooks everywhere.

Suminagashi translates as floating ink and refers to the beautiful marbled wave like patterns that extend through the blade from the tip to the heel, unveiling a new mosaic with every sharpening. Only the most skilled of artisans can forge together these metals in such complex puzzle piece formations to fashion knives of this caliber with the highest quality, blending aesthetics and performance.

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 62-63, they offer a rare combination of traditional Japanese high carbon knives with stainless steel properties. The Yoshihiro Hiryu Ginsan Series has a higher level of finishing and polish than our standard Yoshihiro Ginsan and Hayate Ginsan knives.
