The Best of Yoshihiro Japanese Knives
Yoshihiro Knives have only been available to customers outside Japan for the past six years. This is probably one of the most traditional companies making (in our opinion) some of the best Japanese knives. The lineage of the techniques used to create Yoshihiro knives can be traced back to the Japanese sword smiths who perfected the technique of handling fire, iron and water. Their knives are a fruition of 600 years of traditional skills melding with modern technology.
