Yoshida Hamono - ZDP-189

Designed by Oster Rob in Slovenia and Yoshida Hamono, the heart of the knives is made of ZDP-189 steel with an HRC of 66:67, 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.


Why buy this range

Incredible sharpness and edge retention combined with a stylish kurochi finish.
