Product description

Our handmade Yoshihiro Honyaki knives are handcrafted with extraordinary skill, forged of the highest quality steel according to the traditional methods used in ancient Japanese sword making by our master artisans of incomparable skill, some of which have over 50 years of experience. Honyaki means "true forged" and represents the highest level in Japanese knives, requiring experienced master knife-smiths, versed in the traditional art of sword making. A single piece of White Steel #2 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 65, is heated in hearths that reach temperatures in the thousands and then quenched in cool water for hardness creating knives of the highest caliber, blending aesthetics and performance.

Our Yoshihiro Honyaki knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Yew Tree wooden 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 Kiritsuke knife is a traditional Japanese all purpose chef's knife that resembles a sword. Its length allows it to cut sushi and sashimi like a Yanagi, and the wideness of the blade gives it the dexterity to do multiple jobs. The sword tip also helps balance the weight of the knife and can be used for intricate and precise knife work for exquisite service. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional. Available in 10.5IN (270mm), with a limited lifetime warranty.

Although traditional Japanese carbon steel knives are not stainless, with proper care they can provide years of enjoyment. Keeping dry in between usage, and applying Tsubaki Oil (as included) before storage will keep your knife in tip top shape.

Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones.

Literary pilgrimage: Kipling's dream home in Sussex

Whenever I have been on literary pilgrimages, the greatest pleasure has usually been found in the private home of the Great Man or Great Woman. Libraries, museums, galleries, churches and theatres have been wonderful sources of information about literary heroes, but it was at home that the writer could be at his/her most intimate, domestic, sociable, comfortable and even idiosyncratic. It was also the place where the writer’s own taste in architecture, furniture, decorative arts and landscape gardening could be best examined.

Rudyard and Carrie Kipling moved into an impressive Jacobean home, Bateman's , near Burwash in rural East Sussex, in 1902. We know when the house was built; the date over the porch says 1634.

Kipling received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907 and was both the first English language writer to receive a Nobel Prize and its youngest recipient ever. So we can assume that many of his important books were written inside the peaceful oak beams and mullioned windows of Bateman’s.

The book-packed study still holds all his writing paraphernalia. He was very fussy about his schedule and punctually, each morning, he went to his study to write. The Indian rugs that reminded him of his boyhood home in Mumbai are still there, along with an English walnut chair, his French walnut table, blotter, a pewter ink pot, a rather cheap pin box and a more expensive pen tray for the ink brushes. I rather expected Kipling to return from lunch at any moment, to rest and read on his oak day bed. In fact there is an eastern flavour in other parts of the house as well, travel mementos from when he got his first job in India as a young journalist. There are blue and white dishes and vases, decorated boxes and Kipling's collection of miniature Indian, Chinese and Japanese deities that he called his household gods. You can see internal photos from the house in Period Property UK .  But part of the...
