Introducing Hatsukokoro Yoake--the perfect combination of power and precision. This knife boasts a sturdy feel along the spine and thin, sharp grinds at the edge, thanks to its wide primary bevel and top-notch Aogami #1 carbon steel.
The name "Yoake" means dawn, and the soft iron cladding in the Sakai tradition gives the blade a beautiful touch. With kurouchi finish on the top and hand-sharpened using natural stones on the bottom, these tall knives are sure to impress. Upgrade your cutting experience with Hatsukokoro Yoake.
Please note that due to the thickness of the spine, our sayas do not fit this knife--we recommend the 10" felt blade guard instead.
