Kanetsune Special made Yanagiba

This is one of special made Kanetsune Yanagiba Hocho. Unlike other Yanagiba hocho, this one has a sword-shape tip that might make knife enthusiast think of traditional Japanese Samurai swords. The bolster is made from dark-colored buffalo horn shaped into octagon shape so as its ebony-made handle.This Yanagiba is not for everybody, only for some people who appreciates the beauty of Japanese cutleries. You can get what you see in the picture.

◆This is a Honyaki knife.

The one forged from single high carbon steel. The blade is much harder than other Kasumi knife (laminated blade, or the one made out of two steel materials.) or regular Western style kitchen knives.
Honyaki hocho is very difficult to make and hard to maintain and use. Due to its hardness, it is not recommend for everybody, only the people who know how to handles genuine traditional Japanese Hocho.

◆If you would like to order a Saya (a scabbard), please place an order when you order the knife. Due to a slight difference in each knife, we do not sell a Saya separately.
