Yoshihiro - Sakai Japan
Yoshihiro have been producing knives in much the same way for over a century in Sakai Japan. The skills the craftsmen use have actually been around much longer than that. The origins of the techniques used to make Yoshihiro knives began in the 14th century, when swordsmiths used techniques of handling iron, fire and water to create the Katana of the Sumurai.
As the history of Japanese knife forging tells us, over a period of centuries, the sword smiths gradually transitioned to knife smiths. With that transition came an ethos of knife making that sets the region apart when it comes to quality and precision. Making Yoshihiro one of the best Knife brands around.
