Togashi’s smith and sharpener are the duo of Kenji and Kenya, whose selective process of finding suppliers is a testament to their pride and skill. Kenji Togashi-san is one of the few remaining smiths in Sakai who can forge Honyaki blades, a technique referring to differentially tempering blades. This process of creating a hardness gradient in the same steel is notorious for being difficult to master for its metallurgically high stress-inducing quenching process. Togashi-san’s White #1 steel has a reputation for being able to take a super high grit edge very quickly, ideal for people who enjoy testing the boundaries of sharpness.

A Kiritsuke Yanagiba is a Japanese fish-slicing blade with a slanted tip from a traditional single-sided blade called a Kiritsuke. This is single-sided/beveled, and often simply referred to as a ‘sushi knife’. These slicers may not be as versatile as its double-sided cousin, Sujihiki, but when it comes to pure slicing tasks of boneless protein (not just fish), a well-sharpened Yanagiba is unmatched in performance. It is a great addition for any cook.
