Yoshikane Mini Knife has a traditional form of Ikasaki, a knife for boning and cutting little squids. Actually, many Japanese chefs used it for many other purposes as a sharp and handy petite knife. It can peel the fruits of cut the smallest fishes, cut off vegetable roots or cut the dessert. Yoshikane Mini Knife is made by the traditional Japanese forging technology called hagane-tsuke. Two lists of steel, a soft one and a harder one, are forged together all along the length, it differs from hon-yaki hammering tradition as it doesn’t mix the lists one into another deeply. So, to prevent the lists from departing away from each other and to prevent the blade from bending, the blacksmith should have a lot of knowledge and experience to master this technology.
Yoshikane Hamono Seisakusyo was founded in 1919 by Mr. Yoshida Kanekichi in Tsubame city, known as blacksmith center since the 16th century. The 4th generation master, Mr. Yamamoto Kazuomi, the grandson of Mr. Yoshida, is strong-spirited to keep and protect Yoshikane Knives’ reputation and popularity amongst Japanese chefs and professionals from all over the world.
