Master Hideo Kitaoka is a third generation master blacksmith, and focuses solely on crafting flawless single bevel knives in the Takefu Knife Village. He has worked as a blacksmith for over 30 years, carrying on the knowledge he learnt from his father and great grandfather, also master blacksmiths. These are specialty single bevel right-handed sushi knives, and at 300mm are on the longer side of the sushi knives you can find. The Migaki finish is clean and the choil has the edge taken off.

STEEL BREAKDOWN – Blue Steel is a traditional, high-carbon steel made by Hitachi Metals in Japan. It is the favourite steel of many knife makers and chefs across the world for it’s fantastic edge holding ability, toughness, and ease of sharpening. It contains few stainless elements, and as such will develop a patina, and develop rust spots if left wet after use. It requires a little more care and maintenance than something like VG-10 (Stainless Steel), so consider this when purchasing a Blue Steel knife as your first Japanese knife.

Packaging needs to be better

Hi there, I just wanted to let you know know that the package my new knife was sent in didn’t protect the knife properly. When I opened the package the box of my knife was bent, it didn’t look too bad until I opened the box to find that my knife was bent. I t wasn’t bad enough that I couldn’t straighten it, I just wanted to pass this on. Thanks

Hideo Kitoaka - 300mm Yanagi

This product absolutely blew my mind. Out of the box edge was insanely sharp, the finish was amazing and packaged with care. Regular shopper through Chefsedge and always amazed with whatever is purchased and the service to go with it!
