Enjoy the superior edge retention and sharpness of a high carbon knife without the apprehension of discoloration or rust. This next generation steel, made possible by recent advancements in metallurgy, was developed to perform in high paced, high demand workplaces without the hassle of oxidation.

Ginsan blends traditional methods of knife making with modern metallurgy. Ginsan is a breakthrough in the incorporation of high carbon steel and stain resistant metallic elements. With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63, they offer a rare combination of traditional Japanese high carbon knives with stainless steel properties. Hongasumi translates as true mist and refers to the beautiful mist like patterns on the blade that are formed when Ginsan (HRC 62-63) is forged with iron. Ginsan steel is forged by our master artisans to create traditional Japanese knives of the highest quality that can provide peace of mind in high paced environments. 

This Yoshihiro Ginsan Sakimaru Takobiki knife is complimented with a traditional Japanese style Premium Ebony handle equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a “Saya,” which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use.

The Takobiki is a long slicing knife that was designed to slice paper thin slices of fish for sashimi and its blunt sharp tip is useful for cutting the long tentacles of the octopus. The Takobiki is longer and thinner than a Yanagi and can slice through an ingredient in long uninterrupted strokes, preserving its integrity and freshness.
