Mizuno Tanrenjo

The picture above shows a knife that was made at Mizuno-Tanrenjo in Osaka. This is a hand forged Mizu-Honyaki steel blade. This knife is designed to that the handle can be detached from the blade. This knife differs slightly from Nenohifs knives. They let their steel sit for six weeks, which I feel to be a very long time. However, their blades are still very high quality.

Here is a 300mm Yanagiba blade made by Mizuno-Tanrenjo. This knife is made both in white steel and blue steel versions. This knife is very expensive, but this is because it is handmade with the Mizu-Honyaki technique. I used this blade for about two years in the past years, and have many good memories about using it. The fittings on this knife were same type of Nenohi.

mizuno yanagiba

The knife above is called a Kiritsuke-Yanagiba type of blade. This knife is 360mm, so it can be said that it is not very long. I actually have a 330mm Kiritsuke-Yanagiba blade which once you get used to, is quite a good knife. This knife is not often seen in the sushi bars of L.A.
