Musashinokuni Kogetsu Japanese Carbon All Steel Honyaki Honesuki



Kogetsu comes from Goko Hamono, and Musashinokuni Kogetsu is one of its series, using pure Japanese carbon steel of this grade.

The most notable features of Musashinokuni Kogetsu are the "三諦シリーズ (3 Traits Series)," which means "fully hand-forged, full steel, application of traditional Honyaki technique."

Additionally, the edge of the knife features the characteristic "本刃付 (蛤刃)" (Hamaguriburedo). The blade is formed in a full tang, with double-sided bolster cladding, creating the most robust Honesuki.

Combining all these factors, the artisans at Gokou Hamono have created practical knives that are highly penetrative, durable, sturdy and extremely sharp!

This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.

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.
