Yoshimitsu Hamono is a small blacksmith shop run by five brothers in southern Japan that serves mostly the area around Nagasaki. We were the first USA retailer to stock their knives and since then we have expanded the offerings to three lines, all of which represent excellent value for money.

The Yoshimitsu brothers utilize Blue #2 for this selection of blades. Blue paper #2, or Aogami 2, is made by Hitachi Metals and is by far one of the most popular steels in the world of Japanese knives. This high-carbon steel is known for its superior edge retention and its ability to take a more acute edge than White steel. The Blue steel is hardened to about 62 HRC and an outer layer of stainless steel is applied san-mai style to protect and strengthen the inner core. It also makes daily maintenance a whole lot easier!

The Yoshimitsu Blue #2 Petty 150mm sits in the middle of petty lengths resulting in a blade with versatile characteristics. These knives can do so many things—slice, chop, or cut almost any ingredient while still being small enough for fine work like garnishes. Put that together with a standard chef knife and a bread knife and you have the basic tools for almost every cutting task in the kitchen.

The knife comes with a lovely walnut handle and black pakka wood ferrule.

    So far so good. Kind of plane Jane but a nice mid range size. Good for small veg prep, very good little slicer. I got the finishing service and it showed up razor sharp. A fun little knife. Worth the pickup for the price.

    Bought this Yoshimitsu primarly because of the shape, taller than most pettys of this size and almost looks like a small santoku which adds to the versatility, and the looks (kanjis on both sides of the blade and on the handle!). Feels great in hand and to tackle almost any task. fit and finish is poor but it is to be expected for an artisan blade. I will thin it out and try to even the grind once I'm confident that my skills can recreate or come close the the beautiful finish on the cladding.
    I am a bit disappointed with the edge retention, I was excepting it to be better (do not own other B
