BLACKSMITH INTRO – Yoshikane Hamono have been making some of Japan’s finest chef knives for over 100 years. Their SKD Steel range is perhaps their finest offering, sporting the exotic semi stainless high-carbon steel at the core, stainless cladding, and a wide, shallow hammer finish somewhere between Nashiji and Kurouchi.
Paired with their classic burnt chestnut handles, these knives are finished to the typical standard of excellence Yoshikane is world-renowned for.
STEEL BREAKDOWN – SKD is an exotic modern alloy with a high carbon content, edge retention similar to that of Aogami Super, and the benefits of added Chromium for rust resistance. These knives come in at 63HRC.
- Washing – Dry your knives as soon as possible after washing and do not leave them wet for extended periods of time. Store in a cool, dry place. No dishwasher use!.
- Cutting – Cut on wood chopping boards only, and do not hit/cut/chop frozen vegetables, bones, or hard objects, as the blade can chip or break.
- Sharpening – We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. We have a full range of sharpening tools here.
