How Japanese Knives Are Made With Japan's RAREST Steel

  • How Japanese Knives Are Made With Japans RAREST Steel


    How are Japanese knives made? With the same techniques used to craft katana (samurai swords), modern Japanese knives are some of the highest quality in the world. They don't break or bend, they can slice through anything like butter and they're a beauty to behold.

    This video was filmed at Hirata Blacksmiths (平田鍛刀場) on the outskirts of Tokyo. Sukehira Hirata and Nodoka Hirata are a married couple who craft not only Japanese blades, but blades made of the rarest steel in Japan. In fact, this is one of 3 workshops in the whole country, still producing the legendary Tamahagane steel (玉鋼).

  • Why Japanese Chef’s Knives Are So Expensive | So Expensive


    Japanese chef’s knives are some of the most expensive knives in the world. Just one knife produced at Takamura Hamono in Echizen, Japan can cost $900. Echizen has been the center of Japanese knife making for hundreds of years, and today, it’s where many artisans spend decades learning to make high-quality cutlery. At Takamura Hamono, artisans spend over 10 years learning how to properly hammer, sharpen, and polish each blade. The knives are used in many of the world’s best restaurants, including noma in Copenhagen and Le Bernardin in New York City.

  • Why Japanese Swords Are So Expensive | So Expensive


    Japanese sword-making is a tradition that goes back centuries, and one that’s carried on to this day. Each sword takes dedication, skill and can take over 18 months to create. The resulting blades can be worth thousands of dollars. So what makes them so expensive?

    Becoming a swordsmith in Japan takes a 5-year apprenticeship, and there are only around 180 working smiths today. Master Akihira has been making these swords for 21 years at his studio just outside of Tokyo, Japan.

    Japanese swords have always been more than just weapons, they were artworks, status symbols, and throughout history had a huge spiritual importance. 

    Each sword is a unique artwork and one that is made to be admired as you would a painting. As sheets of steel are folded into each other again and again wood grain-like patterns form, and these patterns coupled with the skill of the swordmaster create a completely unique blade. 

    Knowing what to look for in each sword is important, characteristics like the angle of the blade and the way the metal is folded could give away the era in which it was made, and even who made it. Every small detail is treated as equally important. 

    Looking at the months of work that go into creating each blade, it's easy to see why these swords command such a high price. And as there are less and less sword masters across Japan, these works of art are only going to become more valuable.

  • Japanese Knife & Sword City: Seki Experience ★ ONLY in JAPAN


    Traveling for KNIVES and SWORDS! The Japanese knife is quite simply the best in the world. The place best known for them is Seki (関市) in Gifu where Japanese Samurai swords have been forged for over 700 years. That tradition continues today in its knives and cutlery. They're perfect.

    Following World War 2, the city changed from forging the katana to producing some of the world's best knives and cutlery. So, I ended up at Seki Station recently -- to buy the best knife in Japan! Maybe even a samurai sword, too.

    In this episode, John travels to Seki city in Gifu prefecture to check out the CUTLERY FESTIVAL known as the HAMONO MATSURI (刃物まつり) in Japan. Now only will you find over 43 knife makers selling their best at discounted prices, you'll see the most unique knives anywhere as well as Chanbara performances (Samurai Sword Fight Acting).
    The most unique part of the Hamono Festuval is an authentic demonstration of traditional sword forging using Tamahagane Steel.

    They start at 400,000 to 600,000 Yen ($4,000 to $6000) and can go up to $20,000! We'll see swords being made in Seki.

    There many things to consider such as the type of steel, the type of knife, it's balance and of course, it's price.

    Hida Beef (Hida Gyu 飛騨牛) is one of Japan's top wagyu beef and worth trying in Gifu or the Nagoya area.

    Best is to rent a car. It's easiest to get around this way because trains don't leave often in the countryside and many places like Monet's Pond can be accessed only by infrequent buses.
    By Train, it's a short and scenic ride from Nagoya Station or Gifu Station.

  • ‘The Reluctant Master’: Sasuke 佐助 - famous Japanese blacksmith


    Sasuke is one of Japan's most esteemed and legendary blacksmith brands from Sakai City in Osaka. Helmed by master 65-year-old Yasuhiro Hirakawa, his blacksmithing tradition can be traced back 22 generations to when his predecessors crafted guns for Shogun warlords. Today, Sasuke has been crafting bespoke knives and gardening scissors for the past 5 generations since 1867. The most expensive item can fetch up to tens of thousands of dollars. In this film, I document Sasuke as he crafts one of his finest Hanabasami scissors forged from the finest steel in Japan.
    Originally wanting to become a doctor in his youth, Hirakawa unwittingly took over the family business after his father passed away and is today one of the handful of remaining master blacksmiths.
    Despite Sasuke's proud tradition, no suitable successor to continue the brand has been discovered yet, and Master Hirakawa will retire in about 5 years' time. Yet, rather risk tarnishing the Sasuke brand he would rather be the last master blacksmith than to pass the mantle to a lesser-skilled generation.
    Special thanks to former apprentice Eric Chevallier of

    *Update: A lot of people are asking me whether Sasuke still takes apprentices. Short answer is I don't know - but to my knowledge he currently is not training anyone. You'll have to physically ask him yourself in Sakai City and of course speak Japanese. His contact details are:
    'The Japanese Artisan Series' is a non-commercial project by Edwin Lee (Hong Kong) in collaboration with One Ocean Partners (Singapore). It focuses on documenting little-known but highly skilled artisans and tradespeople across Japan centering on themes of tradition and succession. With Japan's ageing population, low birth rate and reluctance of young workers to enter such niche industries, these people's traditional skills are in danger of being lost.

  • Sakai Mukimono Japanese Knife with saya.


    Unagi in Japanese is eel. So this cool looking knife is built to fillet eels. The sharp tip of the knife is inserted into the eel near the head, and then moved along the body of the eel to open up the entire length of the fish. Many variations of this basic blade exist but the generic name for all of the above is still Unagisaki. There are local styles that differ significantly for different cities in Japan like Nagoya, Osaka, and Kyoto. The Sakai Unagi shown here is called an Edosaki.

    Each blade is fitted with a traditional Ho wood oval handle with a buffalo horn ferrule. A custom wood saya and pin are included. The fit and finish of these knives is first-rate and we are proud to be able to add this traditional carbon steel Japanese knife line to our Richmond Sakai brand.

  • Process of making Katana kitchen knives - Japan Quality


    Please see below for the details

    The Katana Kitchen Knife, made with the same high carbon steel, is crafted in the exact same way a Japanese Katana Sword, made by a sword smith, is made.

    The Katana Sword is made from pure iron sand, however these days people use iron ore. We personally make high quality steel from iron sand, and are passionate about making real, high quality Katana knives.

    All hand crafted! All steel Honyaki Knifes

    We make the knives in the same way as a traditional Katana Sword, finishing with a beautiful tempered lines on the blade. We finish by checking and testing the quality of each individual knife to insure we sell only the highest quality product.

    Please enjoy the feel and use of our beautifully crafted Katana Kitchen Knives.

  • Why Damascus Knives Can Take 2 Years To Make


    Today, I made a knife by hand. Well, along with the help of a world-class Master Bladesmith. It's an extremely unique and fascinating practice, and I really enjoyed learning the basics behind the craft. We started the day with a few small pieces of steel and ended with the most beautiful knife I've ever seen...a true work of art. Some aspects of the process are intuitive, while others (for instance, the fact that the knife is soaked in instant coffee to achieve contrast in the Damascus pattern) are rather surprising.

  • Wootz KATANA from bearing balls


    Wootz katana from bearing balls is the longest and most complex project of ours. The bearing ball ingot was very hard to forge and was very large. Its weight was 1410 grams. After it was possible to forge an ingot, it had to be polished on a grinding machine and shaped into a blank. We made hardening on charcoal. Manual grinding of the katana took us two days. We made the handle from brass and hornbeam wood. They covered the handle of the katana with red leather and braided it. The damask katana made from bearing balls turned out to be razor sharp, since the blade was sharpened to zero. If you like how we make a katana from bearing balls, subscribe to the channel, like it. And don't forget to share the video with your friends.

  • Making $35,000 Bonsai Scissors


    When it comes to Japanese craftsmanship, knives often get all the glory. But in the city of Sakai, where traditional metalwork goes back centuries, there is one man who has built his legacy on something a little different. Master blacksmith Yasuhiro Hirakawa is the only traditional scissor maker left in Japan. Using ancient methods, Hirakawa’s legendary scissors can take four times longer to forge than a traditional knife. To buy one of his creations can set you back a hefty amount—his most expensive pair of scissors cost $35,000. For bonsai craftsmen like Masakazu Yoshikawa, however, it’s a small price to pay for the chance to work with the highest quality tools.

    This Great Big Story video was inspired by Genesis.

  • WOOTZ steel from tool bits | Making a CHOPPING knife


    In this video, we cook Woots steel from tool bits. From the ingot that turned out we make a chopping knife . We decided to make the handle for the knife from a particularly durable material - carbon. The scabbard for a knife is made of Kydex manufactured in the USA. The dimensions of this knife can be viewed by clicking on the link below in our store.

    Have you ever wondered where the steel in your knife comes from? In this video TC and Isaac take a trip to Syracuse and Buffalo New York to visit Crucible Industries and Niagara Specialty Metals. If you have ever heard of CPM-S35VN or any CPM product, it came straight from Crucible Industries. After it leaves Crucible Industries, those metal slabs are sent to Niagara Specialty Metals to be shaped and sent out to knife manufacturers. This video will help explain the process that goes into making some of your favorite knives. If you have a favorite blade steel, let us know in the comments below and thanks for watching!

  • The Difference Between German or Japanese Chef Knives | The Euge Food | This or That


    Should I buy a German Knife or a Japanese Knife?

    Fair warning, this is only my opinion and this is only at the most basic level.

    If you are a full blown newbie, I would go for a German knife because they are cheaper and more durable and great to learn on.

    If you have been cooking for a while and are looking for an upgrade, go Japanese with the western finish. This means you will get most of the Japanese profiles without the rust and constant maintenance.

    If you plan on going the Japanese route, I would strongly recommend either getting a sharpening stone or finding a professional sharpener in your town. There is no point in spending money on an expensive knife without plan for maintenance. Kinda like buying a Ferrari with the intent of never seeing a mechanic.

    If you have any in depths questions about this video and knives, feel free to comment or hit me up on any of my socials.

  • Huusk Japan Knife Review - Is This Worth Buying for Regular Kitchen Use?


    Here we take an in-depth look at the controversial Huusk Japan Knife or giving it its full name, the Huusk Japan Premium Control Knife. You can order these from the official Huusk website of which we are not affiliated with. We purchased our Huusk knife using our own money, and found that a lot of people are calling foul or crying scam. Take a look at our full review for the complete picture regarding these cool looking knives (also known as JapaKnives, Viking Knives (insert name here).

    0:00 Intro
    0:23 Huusk Website Claims
    0:48 Trustpilot Reviews
    1:31 Our Experience With Huusk Japan Shipping
    2:44 Is the product a scam?
    3:10 Unboxing & Specifications
    4:18 Impressions & usage
    6:18 Closing Thoughts

    For the record, HUUSK JAPAN is merely a company name, the website never claims the knives are Japanese or even made in Japan. Anyone can make a company like that, so for example, I could make a company RobCram Japan. I think most people then might assume I am related to Japan in some way. If you look on the website it does not make any reference or claims of the knives being MADE IN JAPAN. These are details that most people overlook. The only reference to Japan is inspired by Centuries-old Japanese knife making traditions. That's a totally throwaway remark and means NOTHING.

  • Kamikoto Knife Unboxing And Honest First Impressions The Good Bad And Ugly


    Disclaimer I'm not sponsored by anyone for my reviews and these are my opinions as average consumer, I have been in contact with Kamikoto and they said was going to look into the distribution point and said if was any issues with the knives they would be happy to send replacements.
    I will try them out and make another follow up video about quality, I'm on fence about the one that has the bent blade, easy enough to fix but would not have left factory in that condition for what they charge.

    Im Sorry So long but i feel only fair that you the viewer have un edited first look at how things come instead of wondering if was sugar coated.

    If your so inclined you can use the code i found MONDAY for 50% off your purchase at

    The Origins of Kamikoto

    We set out to develop a single bevel Japanese steel knife that we would be proud to use and gift to our friends. For us, knives are a matter of heritage, craft and skill. We sought the counsel of Japanese blade experts and multigenerational Japanese knife smithing families to create knives that could win the appreciation of the best chefs in the world and knife enthusiasts alike.

    Each blade pays tribute to the centuries-old craft of knifemaking, and is handcrafted with precise attention and care, employing traditional skills handed down by expert knifemakers through the centuries. Kamikoto is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, and sources its steel from select and carefully chosen steel mills on Honshu 本州 island, from the prefectures of Niigata 新潟市, Ibaraki 茨城県and Kanagawa 神奈川県, among others. Kamikoto knives are solemn blades made for a lifetime, crafted for chefs and knife enthusiasts.

    A Process Refined over Generations

    The oldest katana 刀 were hot-drop forged – blacksmiths drew swords from a blazing furnace and painstakingly beat it into shape with a hammer. This technique strengthened the metal to exceptional hardness. In forges of this age, metal is cut, then heated to strengthen and harden the blade. Kamikoto knives are made from high quality steel from Honshu 本州, Japan – a steel with high corrosion resistance and durability. In the Kamikoto forge, steel is heated up to 1922°F for two hours and annealed at 392°F for two hours. This strengthens the steel and diminishes the flexibility of the blade – to ensure the knife keeps its edge for longer. The blade stays firm when held against a whetstone. Such blades are prized because they sharpen well, and last a lifetime.

    Kamikoto’s 19-Step Practice

    Each Kamikoto knife goes through a rigorous 19-step process that takes several years from start to finish to complete. With more than 100 years of experience between them, our expert bladesmiths forge and shape raw steel into hardy blades, polishing and sharpening them to an excruciatingly fine edge. Each blade is individually inspected before it leaves our workshop, ensuring that every single Kamikoto knife stays true to the Japanese legacy of crafting single-bevel Japanese steel knives of an exceptional quality. Kamikoto knives are a study in skill; you feel the spirit of the craft in every piece.

    Fully versed in traditional blade-making practices, Kamikoto's blades are handmade by a select group of experienced craftsmen in Niigata, Japan, where blacksmithing can be traced back to before the Edo period, as well as in Yanjiang, China – a town with over 1,000 years of knife and sword making heritage. Today, Yanjiang is the leading center of Japanese-style knife forging, polishing and balancing – where the Japanese legacy is preserved, and carried on, with reverence for the skill of the knifesmiths who evolved this craft centuries ago.
