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 (D-Shaped) 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 Mioroshi knife is a longer and sleeker version of a Deba knife. The Mioroshi has enough heft to filet whole fish and cut through the cartilage and bones of fish while also being long enough to be used as an all purpose knife. The Mioroshi knife can used be for chicken and meat but is not recommended for cutting through large bones. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
