It's not every day that we can offer a knife made by hand from a licensed Japanese swordsmith. Yukawa san is a lone sword maker from Hofu in central Japan and he asked me for a loan over a year ago to build out his workshop and make some improvements. But instead of asking for the money back I told him I would take payment in kitchen knives if he was interested and he said ok. This particular knife is made with Hitachi Shirogami in a santoku style and is rustic and beautiful. The tang is burned into the octagonal handle and is sealed with food safe beeswax. It's a light, thin blade with good cutting action and an interesting history.

      My most prized knife, January 8, 2022
    Posted By: Jordan Ross

    I've been swooning over this knife for a good amount of time. It was removed from the site for a small period but then returned and I couldn't of been luckier to be able to acquire this knife when it was relisted.

    This knife is the epitome of master craftsmanship without any need for flare. From the walnut and buffalo horn handle to the polish to the geometry, this knife is truly perfect.

    The feel is light and nimble with excellent ballance. The edge geometry is ground to a true 0, no microbeveling, and the out of the box edge was spooky sharp.

    Every time I pick up and use this knife I'm filled with awe of the the time and craft that went into making it. On his website, Yasha Yukawa details the processes in the creation of his blades, from hand cutting the charcoal, to the smelting, to heat treating in darkness because the glow of the knife dictates the treatment desired, to the hand filing and finishing...every step is the process of a true master.

    This is by far my most prized knife, with a perfect balance of simplicity and master craftsmanship.

      There's so much more to say, January 8, 2022
    Posted By: Jordan Ross

    I also feel as though my initial review leaves out so much of what makes this knife perfection. That's a fault of my own as I'm flooded with such strong emotion with this knife that I lose track of everything amazing I want to say.

    All I can say is, if you find yourself with the opportunity to own a blade from Master Yasha Yukawa, that you don't pass it by. I will certainly keep my eyes out for others as they become available
