Yoshihiro Yauji is a young blacksmith we recently discovered while we were visiting the famed Takefu Knife Village. We are, in fact, the first retailer to be selling his wares in the USA and we are very proud to be doing so.

Yoshihiro Yauji makes his blades from Shirogami White #2 steel with a cladding made from a soft iron. The blade features a very attractive hammered kurouchi finish. It has a classic yanagiba grind with one edge and a slightly concave back side. The blade is definitely thinner than other yanagibas, which makes for a knife that is light in your hand and very nimble in its abilities.

This is a knife intended for left-handed users so the grind is placed on the left side of the blade and ura on the right. The cladding on single sided blades is placed on the grind side with a slight wrap over onto the ura side. The cladding is further enhanced with some very fine kanji characters. The edge features a small micro bevel for added toughness and to make sharpening a bit easier. Fit and finish is of a high standard and the blade is coupled to a very nice rosewood octagonal handle.

    5  Amazing value , March 19, 2019

    Pictures do NOT do this knife justice. I was extremely pleasantly surprised at the fit and finish of this knife. Beautiful hammered finish on the left side and to my surprise a mirror polish on the right. Great finish on the and a beautiful but modest hand engraved (I think) kanji. If you are considering a knife by him I highly suggest you get one before he starts to command a much higher price tag. Well worth the money for this knife. I havenít seen much better at any price point.
