Gihei knives are made by family Hosikawa, a father and son blacksmith team located in Niigata Prefecture. Their claim to fame is their use of top line steels with extraordinary grinds and heat treatments. Their quality control is equally impressive resulting in blades of beauty and superior functionality and durability.

ZDP-189 is a recently introduced alloy made with Powdered Metallurgical processing. It is one of the most expensive knife steels to produce. The alloy is highly regarded for several reasons including its wear resistance, toughness, and ability to be hardened to very high levels. A side issue of this, however, is the difficulty in sharpening by hand. But once done, you will have an edge of supreme sharpness and ability to last way into your prep sessions.

This gyuto from Gihei is a mid-sized 210mm knife with an average blade height. It is quite stout at the spine and very stiff at the tip. It has a symmetrical 50/50 bevel and a really well-formed edge profile suitable for both push and rocking cutters. The lovely finish on the blade face is beautifully realized with a traditional matte lower blade path and finely chiseled kanji script. A simple and well-finished custom octagonal handle made with buckeye burl.
