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.
