Yoshida Hamono Bunka ZDP-189 Custom Handle 185mm (7.3")
☐ NEW WITH IMPERFECTIONS
The knife is manufactured at the smithy of Yoshida Hamono in Japan, a family company with an age-long tradition in manufacturing state-of-the-art tools and Japanese swords (katanas) by hand. Yoshida Hamono has a great deal of experience forging ZDP-189 steel in the traditional manner. See the photo story from our visit to their smithy. The heart of the knife is made of ZDP-189 steel, which we selected because systematic testing has proven its superior qualities and long-lasting sharpness. The steel is laminated, meaning that the core is made of very strong steel covered with an external layer of softer stainless steel - also known as san-mai clad. The softer external layer protects the core steel from external factors. Kuro-uchi finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look. The knife bears visible impressions of the hand-forging process (round hammer dents on the blade), which gives it a beautiful finish and also prevents food from sticking to the blade.
The handle is designed by a Slovene designer Toni Kancilja. It has a unique twisted shape that is very comfortable. It is designed for right-handed users only.

Another beautiful Knife, delivered super fast and the Okinawa Reef handle really adds to the quality look and feel.
Perfect for those smaller more delicate cutting/slicing jobs.

This 6.5" knife with the Tokyo Night handle is very impressive looking. It is very sharp and has a top quality solid build.
Fantastic for vegetables etc, looking forward to many years of use.
This was a gift for my son so I haven't used the knife. However I have inspected it and (as are the other knives I have purchased at SharpEdge) it is beautifully made and the look and feel are cannot be faulted. The level of service and delivery has always been great from these guys.
Excellent service, very fast delivery, beautiful products.
Fast delivery, excellent knives and professional staff
The knife came as advertised in just a few days from our order. Not only is it pretty and very very sharp but it weighs just a few ounces. We might not be cutting a lot of prosciutto with it, but it will find its way to other uses. We love it! Enjoyed doing business with you.
