Kanehiro KnivesKanehiro Knives
We have been searching for a blacksmith or small company to make a wa-handled equivalent of the popular Hiromoto knives. Kanehiro knives are offering just such a knife and we're happy to add their knives to our site. These knives feature aogami super steel (also called blue paper #2 super) on the core and the knife is then clad with stainless stainless steel to protect most of the knife from reacting with acids or moisture. These knives will only oxidize right along the edge. Knife sharpeners love aogami super steel because it takes an acute edge and holds it. The knives have high hardness of HRC 62-63. Hiroshi Kato (second generation) runs a small blacksmith shop in Takefu Village along with 2 others. The blade engraving in Kanji means "Echizen" and "Made by Kintaro". Kintaro is the late smith (first generation), Mr. Kintaro Kato.
