Since ancient times, the Japanese Katana has been admired for its ability to take an extremely sharp edge and function without bending or breaking. Mizuno Tanrenjo’s Honyaki knives are being crafted using similar traditional methods to achieve the same functionality as the legendary Katana.
The inheritance of these traditional swordsmithing techniques allows Master Mizuno to bring out the maximum performance and beauty from the Hagane used to create these Honyaki Wa-Bocho masterpieces.
We are proud to introduce Mizuno Tanrenjo’s wonderful and beautiful Hamon layer of Honyaki Series (White Steel), which is heat-treated and to an incredible HRc. 64-65.
The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose knife.
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!
Thank you very much for your understanding and attention.

Hi.. This is my first honyaki knife that i ever used and i love it.. The quality of the steel is impressive, fit and finish is perfect with a very good balance and feeling.The knife is very easy to sharpen and holds the edge prety long, i’m using it in a proffesional kitchen not at home.. overall it’s a great knife and i reccomend it even if it’s a bit pricy..
Koki was extremely helpful with his assistance in picking out the one for me. I had a few requests proposed and Koki helped me all the way. The knife came in excellent condition, and the hamon very well polished and pronounced. The knife came very sharp and was even sharper after a natural stone touch up. If you plan on buying one, talk to Koki. You won’t be disappointed.
