Hinoki’s S1 Gyuto Knife Is Essentially a Samurai Sword for Your Kitchen

A recipe with 131 steps is usually a bit complex for our tastes. But a knife that’s the end result of a 131-step process — now, that’s the type of thing we can get behind.


Precision-crafted by third-generation master bladesmiths in Sakai, Japan, from a carbon steel that approximates the material once used to craft Samurai swords, the blades on Hinoki’s S1 Gyuto series are repeatedly hammered, then sharpened with a variety of different whetstones.


Handles, available in brown or black-charred walnut or oak, are crafted for an equally ergonomic grip in both left and right hands.
