Honyaki blades are, without a doubt, the most sought after, discussed, and collected of all kitchen knives. The mystique and allure of a honyaki blade trumps almost every other consideration when looking for that extra special knife.

Honyaki translates to True Forged. What that means, in broad terms, is that the blade is made with one steel. It is not laminated, and it is differentially hardened. Outside of those descriptions, there is much discussion as to the absolute meaning of the word when applied to modern knives. As far as we are concerned we apply the name to any knife that meets those simple criteria.

The Jikko White #3 Mirror Honyaki Gyuto is made in the true honyaki style from a single hammer-forged and -shaped piece of Hitachi White Paper #3 steel. White #3 is more often used in honyaki knives than in clad blades. It has the least carbon of the three white steels and is arguably one of the most difficult to forge. But it can be finished to the highest levels of any of the Paper steels and for that reason, it is particularly liked by sushi chefs.

The skills required to make one of these blades are extraordinary in themselves. But the master blacksmiths at Jikko have taken this knife one step further with the addition of a beautiful hamon known as Moon Over Mount Fuji due to the similarity to the famous Japanese mountain. The design is further enhanced with a crescent moon rising above it.

The blade is an abura honyaki, or oil quenched. It is mirror polished to a stunning degree. A beautifully crafted octagonal handle made from ebony and black buffalo horn is the perfect match for the blade. The knife comes in a custom Yahiko wood box befitting this heirloom quality item.
