This is my first experience to make my own knife. Now I understood how hard it was. What I have learned was what most important thing for make a knife was. It was the COLOR.

I realized that it was important to use all five senses when you make things by checking color, smelling t , listening sound and finishing by touch...
“This knife is a fantastic all purpose utility knife. I use it every day. The blade is very sharp and holds the edge for a long time. It feels perfectly balanced in your hand and has a nice light weight. For my purposes, I wouldn’t change a thing about this knife.” -James Beard Award Winning Chef Tim Cushman -Restaurants: o ya in Boston, NYC, Mexico City, Hojoko, Ms. Clucks Deluxe, gogo ya Boston, Covina & Roof at Park South in NYC Thank you chef Tim !!
Heat the steel 1300℉ and quickly cool it down with water or oil, this process makes steel harder. This process is called “YAKIIRE”. Next step is heating the steel again with 392℉ and leave it in room temperature to gradually cool it down. This process makes knife stronger. This is called “Yakimodoshi”. The blacksmith determines weather, temperature, humidity, type of steel or metal and forge the knife with best heat temperature and condition. This is the professional work by artisan.

They are glazed on the inside only, while the outside is decorated with a little white clay, for an effect evoking the motifs on silk cocoons. Available only at store.
