ZDP-189 Steel Kitchen Knives

ZDP-189 is one of the best high-performance steels used for kitchen knives. Due to the very difficult process of heat treatment and forging ZDP-189 steel, very few blacksmiths are capable of forging it. Our ZDP-189 knives are forged at the smithy of Yoshida Hamono, handmade by blacksmith master Osamu Yoshida.
