Hitohira Togashi 330mm Yanagi Shirogami 1 Mizu Honyaki Taihei Ebony W Saya

Hand made in Sakai, mizu honyaki (water quenched) shirogami #1 forged by dentoukougeishi master smith Kenji Togashi and expertly ground by his son Kenya.

We are super happy to recieve one of Togashi-san's water quenched shirogami 1 knives, Togashi's shirogami 1 forging is very well regarded and to find it in the very difficult to master water quenched honyaki is a find. Shirogami 1 is naturally more brittle than slightly lower carbon content shirogami 2 but rewards the user with longer edge life and the ability to work at even finer finishes.

Not for the first time user of a yanagi, this knife will demand greater skill in sharpening and use to preserve the proper geometry and to avoid damage.
