Né en 1983, M. Yoshihiro Yauji a développé un intérêt pour le bricolage dès son enfance et il est progressivement tombé amoureux des outils en acier. Il a trouvé un lien très spécial avec les couteaux car les couteaux, selon ses propres mots, « représentent le point de départ de l’humanité ». À partir de l’âge de pierre, les êtres humains ont commencé à utiliser des couteaux pour couper des arbres et ont finalement conduit au développement de la civilisation. En 2003, Yoshihiro devient l’apprenti de Maître Hideo Kitaoka, considéré comme l’un des meilleurs artisans du Japon. Après plus de 15 ans de formation, Yoshihiro a finalement commencé à fabriquer des couteaux de manière indépendante en 2019. Il convient de noter qu’il forge, affûte, termine et affûte tout seul.

Maintenance tips

Have it sharpened on a water stone by a professional every year. Store in a dry place. Wash immediately after use and dry completely before storing. Do not soak. Not dishwasher safe.


Each knife is guaranteed for life for obvious problems related to the manufacture of the product. For example, if the handle comes off or cracks after a few weeks of proper use. Or if the blade has a crack in the edge to the spine of the blade. These problems are rare, but they can happen. In which case you will be offered an exchange for the same product or a refund. Each case being different, it is at our discretion to evaluate if our lifetime warranty for obvious manufacturing problems applies.

What are the different types of Japanese knives?

What are the different types of Japanese knives?

Each Japanese knife is made with a specific purpose in mind. There are types of multi-purpose knives such as the Gyuto which is the equivalent of a chef's knife or the Santoku which translates into: three virtues, a name that well represents its multiplicity. The Sujihiki and the Yanagiba are made for slicing while the Nakiri and the Usuba are specialized for cutting vegetables. Without forgetting the Petty for precision tasks. The list goes on and the possibilities are diverse.

Why buy a Japanese knife?

Why buy a Japanese knife?

Japanese blades are lighter, very balanced, higher hardness, sharper and retain their sharpness longer. This allows the user greater control of his work tool and a clean cut to alter the texture and flavor of the food as little as possible.
