Our handmade Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Blue High Carbon Steel Super Kurouchi Kiritsuke Multipurpose Chef knife are unparalleled in their performance. Mizu Yaki is a meticulous process of pure water quenching that draws out the hardness of refined steel while infusing it with enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions. Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, Kurouchi translates as Black Forged and is a traditional Japanese method of crafting high carbon knives that are NOT stain resistant.

Mizu Yaki Blue High Carbon Steel Super with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 64-65 is considered to be the top of its class in high carbon steel metallurgy. It is ranked above Blue Steel Super and is second to none in hardness and edge retention. It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of such exceptional performance and exquisite beauty with a steel of this caliber and is a testament to the extraordinary skill of the artisans. The blade comes complimented with a traditional Japanese handle that is made of octagonal magnolia wood and water buffalo horn bolster equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a "Saya," which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree saps in Japan.

Care & Sharpening: Traditional Japanese knife making values a sharp edge, which requires attention and care. Sharpening and honing should be done with only water whetstones. Hand wash and dry only, and do so immediately if working with acidic ingredients. Do not use on objects such as bones, nutshells, and frozen foods.
