Experience the finesse of Japanese craftsmanship with this honyaki yanigiba from renowned blacksmith Satoshi Nakagawa. Based in Sakai, Japan, Nakagawa-san has built a reputation for his high success rate of the honyaki construction and the unmatched sharpness of his knives.
This gyuto is a perfect illustration of Nakagawa-san's skill. It's crafted from Hitachi Shirogami #3 (White #3) carbon steel, known for its ability to achieve a razor-sharp edge and maintain it through extended use.
