Yoshida Hamono's ZDP-189 Range
A stunning range of knives from Yoshida Hamono.
Designed by Oster Rob in Slovenia and Yoshida Hamono, the heart of the knives is made of ZDP-189 steel, which was selected because systematic testing has proven its superior qualities and long-lasting sharpness.
The steel is laminated with an external layer of softer stainless steel that makes it easier to care for and more durable. Such a blade remains sharp for a very long time, its softer external layer makes it easier to sharpen, and it also protects the core steel from external factors.
The Kuro-uchi finishing of the blade, which is untreated at the tip and has already developed dark patina, protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look. The knife bears visible impressions of the hand-making process, which gives it a beautiful finish and also prevents food from sticking.
What you get
A textured shiny black box, lined with black card and the knife name in Japanese along the top. The blade is encased in a plastic sheath for protection.
All our knives also come with free blue plasters just in case you're not ready for the sharpness! If you intend to use your knives regularly (and you should be) then we don't advise you to use the boxes for day to day storage, get a magnetic knife rack instead.
