Kengata Yanagiba Knife Hien Shinuchi Water Honyaki with Saya 300mm (11.8")

The blades use a multitude of techniques generated over the 600 year history of knife making. The Honyaki blades each hand made and meticulous attention to detail is given to all aspects of the knife, from the blade to the saya. The forging method is very similar to the Japanese sword as the blade can carry a razor sharp edge and the master blacksmith and master sharpener utilize all of their expertise to create this exquisitely hand crafted knife.  

This Hien blade has a stunning crescent effect which is unique to each blade.  The blade material is Shirogami #2 (White Steel #2) and must be wiped down after each use.  The handle is designed from ebony and buffalo horn to finish off this stunning blade.
Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
