“Mizuhon-yaki” is a traditional Japanese knife-making technique that plays a particularly important role in the forging of kitchen knives and blades. This technique is used in the making of the blade portion of blades and is a method used to produce high quality blades.
The characteristics of Mizumoto-yaki are as follows
Forging Technique: Mizumoto-yaki uses the forging technique, in which a single piece of steel is heated and stretched to form the blade of a kitchen knife. This process gives the blade strength and durability.
Patterns and aesthetics: The forging process produces a unique pattern (“jiki-e” or “ground pattern” or “nukime”). This gives the blade of the knife a beautiful pattern or shade. This pattern gives the knife a beautiful and luxurious appearance.
Excellent sharpness and durability: Blades made by Mizumoto-yaki are highly sharp and durable. Hardness and suppleness are balanced to maintain both sharpness and blade strength.
Mizumoto-yaki is one of Japan’s traditional knife-making techniques and an important process for producing high-quality knives and blades. This technique requires a high level of skill and experience on the part of the craftsman, and we are able to meet the demands of modern times while preserving the traditional manufacturing process.
