Our Limited Edition Yoshihiro Hayate Series is forged with atypical skill and exquisitely hand-sharpened by our master artisans. This particular knife series has been forged in extremely high temperatures to succeed in a hardness level that is abnormal in VG-10 stainless steel knives. The knife is then meticulously hand-sharpened with great care and skill in an effort to achieve a perfect balance between high-performance and the ease of maintenance from a semi-stainless steel blade. Our Hayate Series is complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Premium Ironwood Deal with with Sterling Silver ring and Double Ebony bolster equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a “Saya,” which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree sap in Japan.

This can be a cross between a chef’s knife and a vegetable knife and is perfect for dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven.
