Hitohira Imojiya OKD VG-1 Honesuki Kaku 150mm Rosewood Handle


Hitohira is our brand new supplier that has been absolutely killing it. The president, Mr. Hokuto Aizawa, has traveled the world in his mid-20s and saw firsthand how Japanese kitchen knives are adored throughout the northern hemisphere and decided to make the products even more accessible. Now, Hitohira brings many new and old favourites back into our shelves with consistency, making our clients even happier. 

For Hitohira all lines, there are abbreviations and pseudonyms to organize and identify the products. If you have any questions about the individual craftsman involved, send us an email, and we can do our best to clarify within our limits. 

Imojiya line is a budget-friendly western-handled series. The maker of OKD used to work for a famed Seki-city knife maker before branching off and doing his own work. These blades offer performance and a decent edge retention without the full maintenance headache of carbon steel, thanks to the stainless steel construction. VG-1 stainless steel offers excellent edge retention and is relatively easy to sharpen, taking on a fine edge with ease. At an exceptional price, these are ideal for first time users of Japanese knives who don’t mind putting a little bit of time into maintaining the edge of their knife. 

These limited knives were old stock blades that were never commissioned to the original supplier that ordered them. Once these are sold out, they’re gone!
