Masamoto Shiro-ko Honyaki knives are forged from a single piece of white carbon steel #2, adorned with a magnolia or ebony wood handle and a water buffalo horn bolster. Masamoto Sohonten’s honyaki knives represent the company’s long standing history and prestige in Japan. White carbon steel honyaki style knives can achieve the sharpest edge possible out of all traditional Japanese knives, but are incredibly difficult to forge and use. Korin only recommends honyaki knives to those very experienced with traditional Japanese knives.
