Yoshida Hamono is a traditional knife making company with a long family history in making knives and tools. Yoshida offer several ranges of knives with a focus in traditional methods and hand forging.
This range is made of Blue (Aogami) 2 carbon steel. The Kurouchi (or Blacksmith) finish keeps the blackened surface from the forging process and creates a lovely rustic appearance. It also provides a protective layer reducing the risk of surface corrosion and helps keep production costs down too, making these incredibly good value for money.
Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
