Key Features

  • The Kinju Honhagane series is a collection of authentic Japanese knives with a robust blade, created by hammering soft iron to steel. The blade is fixed with a bolster made of highly durable and resilient water buffalo horn.
  • The elegant handle is made of natural wood that feels comfortable in your hand.
  • The bolster is made of durable water buffalo horn. The water buffalo horn tightens when absorbing water, preventing the blade from falling out.
  • The robust blade is created by hammering soft iron to steel. It's an authentic Japanese steel knife with a sharp edge that is easy to sharpen.

Use & Care

  • Remove the food from the blade with PH neutral dish soap and a sponge after each use. Rinse it well. Remove the moisture with a dry cloth and store it in a dry place.
  • Even a high grade knife may deteriorate without proper care at the right time. When the knife can't cut through tomatoes or pieces of chicken smoothly, it is time to sharpen it.
