We are very happy to welcome a new blacksmith to KNIFE.

Yukihiro Sakai is a young blacksmith from Kumamoto Prefecture. After apprenticing for Daisuke Nishida, Sakai-san has since started producing his own line of knives using many of the same techniques and materials as Nishida-san, including forge-welding their own steels in house. 

These knives are made with Shirokami #1, or white carbon steel, and are entirely handmade by Sakai-san. 

This Hinokuni line is named for the Kumamoto Prefecture and Mount Aso, a famous volcano, and means 'Country of Flame.' 

While this knife is sold as a Petty, the shape is similar to a Ko-Santoku (small santoku) and is a great option for those who like a shorter blade with lots of knuckle clearance. 

Please note that these knives are cladded with soft iron and are entirely reactive. Keep clean and dry to prevent rusting.
