This small, family run blacksmith shop is new to kitchen knife making even though they've been making farming and gardening tools for over 90 years. Based in Kumamoto, we are their first international customer selling kitchen knives. Their first effort are two of the most popular items made for Japanese families, the santoku and nakiri made with Blue #2 steel and a nice hardwood octagonal oak handle. These knives are nicely made and hand engraved. This transition from farm tools to kitchen knives is a common one with many of our blacksmiths. We've been able to help support these multi-generation businesses by encouraging them to diversify their product offerings as the farm tool business has declined over the past 40 years.

    Simply love my Yoshito Saku Blue . Such a beautifully crafted knife. I'm also thrilled with the stone and over the sink bamboo bridge. Thanks to the tutorial and these sharpening tools, my old knives have come back to life.

    Bought this on a recommendation from CKTG. I agree it is a bit "rustic" in the fact it's definitely not a production knife. But the blue steel blade and wood handle are gorgeous. Great integration of steel into the handle. Took a bit of time to get an edge but it holds it. This knife is a dream with harder vegetables. Easy to use, great balance and just fun to break out in the kitchen.
