Our handmade Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Kurouchi Series are unparalleled in their performance. Mizu Yaki is a meticulous process of pure water quenching that draws out the hardness of refined steel while infusing it with enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions. The Black Forged ‘Kurouchi’ finish consists of the carbonized coating created during heat treating and provides for a characteristic look and a rustic aesthetic to the blade.
Blue High Carbon Steel #1 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63 is prized for its high edge retention. It is sandwiched in between carbon steel in the traditional Warikomi style to add to its durability and ease sharpening. It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of such exceptional performance and exquisite beauty with a steel of this caliber and is a testament to the extraordinary skill of the artisans.

Blue High Carbon Steel #1 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63 is prized for its high edge retention. It is sandwiched in between carbon steel in the traditional Warikomi style to add to its durability and ease sharpening.

Proudly made in Japan and not mass produced. This knife is complimented with a traditional Japanese Wa-style handcrafted Octagonal Handle that is lightweight and ergonomically welds to the hand for seamless use. An optional and recommended protective wooden sheath called a Saya can be purchased together, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use.

Traditional Japanese knife making values a sharp edge, which requires attention and care. Sharpening and honing should be done with only water whetstones. Hand wash and dry only, and do so immediately if working with acidic ingredients. Do not use on objects such as bones, nutshells, and frozen foods. Carbon steel can oxidize if not properly maintained. Keep dry and oil regularly to prevent oxidation.

One of the most essential knives a chef can have is a Japanese slicing knife known as a Sujihiki Kiritsuke knife. The Sujihiki Kiritsuke is a slicing knife with a long narrow blade that smoothly slices through meat or vegetables and preserves the integrity of each ingredient’s freshness. The Sujihiki Kiritsuke has a sword-tip that helps balance the weight of the knife and is recommended for chefs who are interested in a Sujihiki but prefer a slightly heftier knife.

Every knife from Yoshihiro is handcrafted by master artisans creating a unique one-of-a-kind work of art.
