This Special Custom Order Mizuno Tanrenjo Honyaki Wa-Gyuto knife shares the same blade shape and geometry as the popular "Masamoto KS-3124", 240mm Wa-Gyuto. Master Mizuno makes these knives with an especially thin blade cross-section and he has produced another Honyaki Wa-gyuto masterpiece!
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!
To match the beautiful art of Mizuno Tanrenjo Honyaki Wa Gyuto blade , this knife comes with Vivid Purple Color of Octagonal Handle, which is made from Stabilized Maple Burl Wood and has a Water Buffalo Horn Ferrule. A handcrafted Magnolia Wood Saya (Scabbard / Sheath) is also included to protect this magnificent blade.
