Mizuno Tanrenjo Honyaki DX Gyuto 240mm Tasmanian Blackwood
Mizuno Tanrenjo has a long standing reputation for high standards and tradition. This is the 4th generation Mizuno Family, Jun-san and Nanako-san.
DX Honyaki is forged from a single piece of Aogami 2 steel. The water quenched honyaki blade is differentially hardened and is rated at 63-64 hrc. The honyaki process results in extremely long lasting edge life. Thin convex grind makes for a very high performance and agile blade with great food release. The blade is mirror polished and the hamon is polished to show contrast. The handle is octagonal tasmanian blackwood/ african blackwood/ nickel silver spacer.
