Masamoto Ao-ko Honyaki Mirror-Finished

正本 玉青鋼誂鏡面仕上

Loved and admired by collectors, Masamoto’s highest quality yanagi knife is entirely handcrafted from a single piece of blue carbon steel #2 and hand polished for a stunning mirror finish. Each piece is embellished with an ebony handle, a water buffalo horn bolster, and a silver ring. Honyaki knives made of blue steel are less brittle and have a longer edge retention.

Specifications

  • HRc: 64-65 
  • Bevel: Single Edged 
  • Steel Type: Blue Steel #2 (Moisture and acidity will cause discoloration or rust)

For Left-Handed Customer

  • Left-handed blades must be special ordered from Japan, and will cost 50% more than the right-handed blades. Due to how each traditional Japanese knife is handmade by right handed craftsmen, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to forge and deliver.
