These Japanese Hocho from the historic Gihei house are forged from one of the world’s hardest blade steels. The core cutting layer is made of Hitachi's powder-metallurgical premium steel ZDP-189, which provides extreme sharpness and durability due to its very high carbon content of 3 %. The blade's 20 % chromium content makes it rustproof and easy to clean. The extremely hard cutting steel is covered by two tougher stainless steel layers (SUS405), making the knife highly break-resistant. The octagonal handle made from Japanese zelkove has a wonderful yellow-brown colour and is completed with a buffalo horn ferrule. The double-bevelled blades bear the master's engraved signature. Hardness 66 HRC.
