Availability: Normally ships within 1 to 6 days


 This is the Custom Limited Edition and result of Collaborative works with Custom Handle Maker for making one of a kinds, Custom Limited Edition Sukenari Honyaki White Steel No.2 Wa Gyuto knife.

Honyaki knives are most appealing to experienced users and professionals that demand the very best knives available. As we shall explain below, Honyaki knives are also the most challenging knives for forge smiths and craftsmen to produce.

The ‘one-piece’ blade construction of the Honayki knife is handcrafted using processes which are similar to those used in Japanese sword making, such as the Tsuchi-Oki process. This method involves heating the blade to around 800°C, quenching it in water to increase its hardness and then placing it in rice-straw ash to slowly cool down to room temperature; This detail is important since it helps to prevent uneven tension from developing in the blade

Sukenari have used their rich experience and knowledge to determine what methods work the best when making Honyaki knives and have also managed to develop a keen sense for what variables are important: The traditional hammer forging techniques used to shape the blade; the special ingredients for the Tsuchi-Oki (Clay mixture) and its application to the blade; carefully managing the temperature of the blade during the water-quenching process. Every step of production is perfectly demonstrated by Sukenari’s Master forge-smith and faithfully passed on to the next generation.

Sukenari’s Shirogami #2 Honyaki Knife is beautifully mirror-polished and has an impressive wavy Hamon pattern. The blades are very thin just behind the cutting edge and have a rounded finger choil that is very comfortable.

 This Sukenari Honyaki Wa Gyuto 270mm Knife comes with Premium Custom Handmade Octagonal Stabilized Yellow Color Box Elder Burl Wood Handle with Composite Stone collar and endcap, Mammoth Tooth collar with Nickel Silver and Red Liner spacers.

 For safekeeping, this knife comes with a matching Black Lacquered Wooden Saya ("Sheath") and a black pakkawood Saya pin.

 This knife comes packaged in an elegant wooden presentation box that is secured with woven fabric ties / straps.

 The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose knife.

    This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.  

    For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened  50/50 without problems. 

    We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.

    • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
    • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
    • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade and keep it in dry place.
    • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
    • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
    • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
    • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.
