Yoshikane Hamono is located in Sanjo, Niigata and founded in 1919. It is led by Mr. Kazuomi Yoshida who continues to excel and evolve in the manufacture of high quality kitchen knives. This series is forged in SKD and coated with stainless steel. SKD is considered a semi-inoxidable and will form a patina slowly over time. SKD has a very good cutting-edge holding ability, tenacity and very easy sharpening. In my opinion, this knife are among the best in terms of cutting capacity and quality/price.
