Our handmade Yoshihiro Kasumi knives are crafted by our master artisans with the utmost care to create high quality knives that offer exceptional performance with exceptional value. White Steel #2 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62, is forged with iron to create beautiful mist patterns called Kasumi. Our Yoshihiro Kasumi knives are incomaparable in their craftsmanship and performance. Yoshihiro Kasumi knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Magnolia wood (Round) handle affixed with a Water Buffalo horn bolster, and a protective wooden sheath called a Saya is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. The Kenmuki knife is a traditional Japanese knife that is used for smaller precision tasks and can intricately carve and style vegetables and fruits for beautiful presentations and garnishes. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
