use this knife all the time

It's become my favorite wood carving knife. The large bevel makes it super easy to sharpen. Excells at opening the mail too. I only get junk mail and I don't need to slice the envelopes open before tossing them, but I do it anyway because the knife is fun to use.

Good experience. First time using this type of knife. I urge people who are just getting into hand carving to wear protective gloves., If I had not had those gloves on ai would have been in the ER GETTING STITCHED UP. These knives are very very sharp but used carefully are a great high quality wood carving tool.

  • The Yokote knife is a general purpose Japanese laminated knife blade for shaping, whittling, carving, & even grafting in the garden. Top side is the only side ground & sharpened with the backside flat which can be used in a skimming paring action.

       Mr. Ikeuchi master blacksmith along with his fellow blacksmiths hand forge, grind, & sharpen these knives. White high carbon steel laminated on top with a softer layer of steel allowing the blade to be hardened to Rockwell 64. With all steel as it becomes harder & tougher, it will be more brittle & can snap in half, the soft steel lamination arrests this possibility. These knives we carry from Mr. Ikeuchi are beveled ground on one side only & flat to edge on the underside yet hollow ground as a common practice to facilitate less time in re-honing to a sharp edge.

       Hardwick & Sons is pleased to offer quality tools from Japan for the many people who desire special & well-crafted tools. The wide variety of Japanese products that we offer come from the many craftsmen & toolmakers in Japan who have a special dedication to their skillful craft & art of toolmaking.
