Sukenari was founded in the year 1933 by Master Blacksmith Hanyaki Toukichi. Toukichi-san originally worked for the famous Japanese knife maker, Masamoto, where he mastered the traditional processes involved in forging and knife making.

The Sukenari workshop is located in Toyama Prefecture, in the center of Japan. Their handcrafted knives are very popular and well known among professional Japanese chefs in the area. Sukenariís business style is both practical and very proactive. They not only make the knives but they also sell them directly to Japanese chefs in the region. This was the original way of selling in any industry and we were impressed to find that the craftsmen and forge-smiths who make these blades are also in charge of sales.

The upside of this is that when they sell to professional chefs, they receive valuable feedback directly from them. Carefully heeding each piece of advice or complaint from these professionals allows them to efficiently improve their products and quality. They have continued and repeated this effort for over 80 years since starting the business.

This 270mm yanagiba is a superbly crafted knife featuring a core of Aogami Super steel covered in a softer carbon steel cladding. The steel is hardened to 64 HRC which imparts a great stability and strength to the cutting edge. Included with the knife is a nice friction fit saya and a yew and buffalo horn handle.

    Awesome knife. Got it for slicing meat and fish. Used it for sushi the other night and absolutely love it. This is definitely the sharpest knife that I have ever used before. Has a great look to it and feels great in the hand. Highly recommended.
