This Sukenari is made with a single piece of white #1 steel and has a beautiful mirror finish on the knife. Every single step in the process is more difficult when making Honyaki knives. They're harder to hammer, heat treat, grind, engrave and polish. It takes years to perfect all the processes or else you ruin the knife. This is why they're more expensive and so few smiths make them currently. We are offering this one with a custom handle by our master woodworker Isaiah Schroeder made of stabilized woods.

This is a fantastic knife and made by one of the true artists in Honyaki knife making currently working in Japan. This knife comes with a modest, but completely cool, hand made, friction fit saya for the knife. They include it for free to protect the knives in shipping and they make them one at a time with hand tools on the floor of their attic's shop. The custom handle is made with a beautiful piece of multi dyed maple burl with jade stone and brass spacers and oak bog wood ferrule. It's one of the nicest handles we've done this year.

    5  Worth it., February 24, 2015

    This is my second honyaki in total. I have the blue #2 honyaki from konosuke, so Ive had experience with them before. The grind of this knife is perfect, in my experience that is. Nothing sticks to it, hardly any lift with horizontal cuts on onions. Goes through carrots as if it was butter. No wedging, no sticking. F&F are 6/5, the handle is perfect length for the knife, balance point is a smidge blade heavy ( how I prefer it ) rounded, spine, choil and all that jazz. Havent sharepened it yet, only stropped on horse butt, with almost 4 days now in a professional kitchen with all the regular knife work that goes into that. From tomatoes to mass onions, do the brunoise of shallots ( where it preforms like a charm in the small detail work ) . The mirror polish it very well done, I have started to develop a patina starting at the cutting edge up toward the middle of the knife beautiful blue-ish patina.

    This is proably a messy, sloppy, rambling on review. but I love the knife and its worth the money. I truly recommend, and to add this was my first sukenari knife in general. With a bunch of questions answered by Mark R. was really a no brainer.

    This is a true work of art - it is an awesome slicer. White #1 is the easiest to sharpen of all carbons. This one seems to keep an edge on quite a while and I\'ve had no chipping issues at all. Isaiah makes a killer handle that feels great and looks stunning. One of my Favs, Sukenari makes a absolute top-of-the-line blade. Remember, these are hand made, one-of-a-kind knives even without the unique handles. Worth the $$$.
