Minamoto Akitada hails from the prestigious Mizuno Tanrenjo in Sakai, Osaka, Japan, founded in 1872 and currently led by the fifth generation.

For generations, the workshop has held the esteemed title of Japanese swordsmiths, consistently adhering to traditional handcrafting techniques.

This product is meticulously crafted using authentic ancient methods of Japanese Katana forging and tempering, resulting in an exceptionally sharp edge, precise weight distribution, and superb craftsmanship!

For connoisseurs who anticipate a high level of expertise and collectible value in blades, don't miss the rare opportunity to acquire this Tyouji Hamon Honyaki Wa-Gyuto!

Crafted using white #3 steel with traditional smelting and water quenching techniques, this product undergoes manual mirror polishing.

This process allows the exquisite "Tyouji hamon" pattern to naturally emerge.

Artisans intentionally maintain the full mirror surface to showcase the delicate texture and sheen achieved through manual polishing.

How to Maintain High Carbon Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry. Please do not use a dishwasher to clean the knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, be sure to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

In the case of rust on the blade, you can use a rust eraser or a special 3M scrubber (only suitable for matte-finish knives). If there is minor rust on the mirror-finished parts, use rust removal paste and make sure to thoroughly remove any remaining residue with a Cleaning Naphtha to eliminate all chemical remnants from the blade.

Please use the knives for their intended purpose. Different knives are designed for slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Do not use them for purposes beyond their intended use to avoid damaging the knives.

We highly recommend using EDCI's high-tech rust prevention spray to maintain your high carbon steel knives. EDCI rust prevention spray is made in the USA, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, poses no harm to the environment, and is non-flammable.
