Notice about White and Marbled Water Buffalo Horn Ferrules for Mizuno Tanrenjo Knives
Unfortunately, Mizuno Tanrenjo and most other knife makers are now struggling to find the raw materials to make White or Marbled Water Buffalo Horn Ferrules for their knife handles.
Due to these difficult and unfortunate circumstances, we regret to inform our customers that Mizuno Tanrenjo is no longer able to accept requests for a specific color of Water Buffalo Horn Ferrule. However, we firmly believe in the high quality and craftsmanship of Mizuno Tanrenjo’s traditionally-forged Japanese knives - They are one of the most well-respected producers of traditionally-forged Japanese knives - and we highly recommend them!

My first white steel knife, I am happy to bought it, really sharp and nice weight. The shipping process was in time. Probably buy another knife.
Is a beautiful knife, the weight is just perfect and really sharp
This knife is very well made and is crazy sharp out of the box. The blade is incredibly reactive so be very careful! Don’t leave this knife sitting out for more than 5min after cutting something! Also the shipping was very fast! I am very happy with this purchase!
My BIL is a chef in New York and he specifically requested this knife for a Christmas gift. The shipping was fast, everything came early and he loved his present!
Best super sharp knife I've owened. Superb size to weight ratio. Definitely, my favorite knife in my kitchen.
