Hinokuni san is a 31-year-old blacksmith from Kumamoto prefecture who recently became independent after apprenticing for Nishida san (whose knives we also sell). The steel he uses is Shirogami #1.

Shirogami (White) #1, a very pure carbon steel alloy, is almost identical to Blue #1 steel except for the absence of chromium and tungsten. Also known as Shiro-ko, this is a very popular steel for high-end Japanese cutlery, especially in Honyaki blades. These knives take an extremely fine edge and are easy to sharpen. It is very reactive so wiping down and drying should be done after every use.
