This Custom Limited Edition Mizuno Tanrenjo Honyaki Yanagiba Knife was produced in Collaboration with a Custom Handle Maker, who makes beautiful "one-of-a-kind" handles.

This knife comes with a special Custom Octagon Shaped Handle(Resin Wood Hybrid body, Resin ferrule and endcap, Corian collar with Nickel Silver spacers).

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

Since ancient times, the Japanese Katana has been admired for its ability to take an extremely sharp edge and function without bending or breaking. To achieve the same functionality as the legendary Katana, Mizuno Tanrenjo’s Honyaki knives are crafted using similar traditional blade smithing methods.

The inheritance of these traditional sword smithing techniques allows Master Mizuno to bring out the maximum performance and beauty from the Hagane (Hitachi White Steel) that is used to create these Honyaki Wa-Bocho masterpieces.

We are proud to introduce Mizuno Tanrenjo’s wonderful Honyaki Series (White Steel). Each knife features a unique, beautiful Hamon pattern and is heat-treated and to an incredible HRc. 64-65!

The combination of cutting technique, acute blade angle, and sharp edge result in very little cellular damage in the cut surface. This is particularly important for dishes where the fish is eaten raw, because it helps to preserve the original flavor and texture of the fish.

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.



This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.

  • 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.
