Yoshimi Kato is the son in law of Hiroshi Kato. He has been apprenticing under his father and Katsushige Anryu for the last 20 + years and is now taking over the family business.
His attention to detail is evident in his knives. Super thin, light and well balance make these knives some of new shop favourites.
SG2 steel is a hard, robust, easy to sharpen metal that we find amazing in kitchen cutlery. Also known as R2.
We are very pleased to see the Kato name live on with Yoshimi.
The Nakiri is the Japanese version of a Chinese cleaver. However a little thinner and quicker for slightly more delicate work in our opinion.
