Gihei Knives

The small shop runs by father and son is located in  Niigata Prefecture, Japan.  They are very skilled polite workers with very vast amount of knowledge of their production so the waiting period to get those incredible  knives are long as GIHEI knife follows the inherited the techniques of making knives from generation to generation. After visiting, I was so amazed to see their humbleness as they served traditional tea with great gesture and showed their art of the work . The owner, Atsushi Hosokawa, has been very proactive in using and developing knives with the best steels available such as ZDP189 and HAP40 and others. HAP40 is Powder High-Speed Steel made by HITACHI Metals, ltd. These knives are heat treated flawlessly at 65-66 Rockwell and they take a great edge and hold it for an incredibly long time
