Honyaki knives are most appealing to experienced users and professionals that demand the very best knives available.
The ‘one-piece’ blade construction of the Honayki knife is handcrafted using processes which are similar to those used in Japanese sword making.
Sukenari’s Shirogami #1 (white Steel No.1) Honyaki knife (HRC64) is beautifully mirror-polished and has an impressive wavy Hamon pattern.
This knife is fitted with a traditional octagonal magnolia wood handle that has a water buffalo horn ferrule. A matching magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) is also supplied for safekeeping.
The Kama Usuba has a Kamagata (Literally, “sickle-shaped”) tip, or ’Sheepsfoot’ blade profile. It originated in the Kansai (Ōsaka) region of Japan and it is often preferred to the square-ended Usuba’s from the Kanto (Tokyo) region because the curved tip is more versatile. It is particularly useful for precision cutting and decorative cutting techniques
