Our Special Craftsman Team specializes in making only the highest-grade of Japanese traditional-style knives, which can only be produced using time-consuming hand work and extraordinary attention to detail during every step of hand making.
The blade is made from solid Swedish stainless steel (HRc. 60), which is well known for its purity and fine grain structure. The combination of this steel and the finely sharpened blades of the knife, mean they are particularly good for precise or detailed cutting tasks.

The Mukimono Hōchō is small knife with a thin blade that is commonly used for the Japanese art of Mukimono (Creating decorative garnishes), and also Kazari-giri (“Decorative vegetable carving”).

This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
I asked Koki about this knife and I glad I did. It is simply the perfect vegetable knife for me. Blade geometry similar to santoku but does all the tricks what usubas can do because of it´s single bevel. It is light and thin, stainless, can get incredibly sharp and stay that way for long, using daily for work, loving it! Highly recommended. Special thanks to Koki!
