Naohito Myojin (明神 直人) is a young sharpener based in Kochi prefecture. While his workshop Myojin Riki Seisakusho is probably not as famous as the established brands from Sakai and Echizen, he is the sharpener behind some of the very famous knife lines in the industry; noteabley the Tetsujin brand and the 'Fujiyama' line by Konosuke.
For this line of knives, Naohito Myojin utilizes SG2 powder steel for the cutting edge. We are huge fans of this type of steel for its easy sharpening and rust resistant properties. We highly recommend SG2 to people looking for high performance without the care involved of a carbon steel blade.
Knife type: Sujihiki
Knife height: 36mm at heel
Spine thickness: 2.78mm above heel
