The honkyaki mirror fimished Aoko or Blue Paper (Aogami) No.2 Steel Knife by Sakai Takayuki is made from famous Yasugi steel, known as prime high carbon steel.
Its blade is made through Japanese traditional Honyaki (Water Quenching) process in Sakai, so the edge gets very hard and retains its sharpness for a long time. Generally honyaki knives cannot be mass-produced and expensive, compared to other types of knives. They are primarily for professional chefs and are recognized the highest quality Japanese kitchen knives.
Speaking to the Ebony Wood handle, the Japanese-Style Octagonal figure fits better comfortably to your hand.
The Buffalo Tsuba equipped to the handle represents high-quality and excellent durability, that means made for professional originally.
(Please be noted that the buffalo tsuba (guard) is a natural product that may possibly be different from the image in color.)
We recommend this premier-class kitchen knife series for professional chefs to enhance their art of cooking as well as for Perfect Gift.
