Suisin Aya

酔心彩 本霞 • 白二鋼

Succeeding his father in the knife crafting arts, Master Itsuo Doi is gaining recognition as an accomplished blacksmith in his own right, turning out finely crafted pieces such as this signature Aya knife. His technique involves repeatedly hammering and tempering shiro-ko (white carbon steel) to create a compact and uniform granular structure in the hongasumi knives. The Aya line distinguishes Master Itsuo Doi’s signature line of traditional Japanese knives, which are highly regarded for their remarkable strength and flexibility. Every Suisin Aya is adored with a magnolia wood handle, a water buffalo horn bolster, and a wooden cover.
