Introducing

Hatsukokoro

Hatsukokoro is a brand comprised of knives from some of the best artisans in Japan. Think Yoshikane, Myojin, Yauji, and many more. The creative force behind the Hatsukokoro brand is clearly doing something right turning out outstanding quality and incredible designs with thick spine tapers, unique tsuchime and damascus patterns, with the use of cutting edge (no pun intended) materials. An instantly popular brand, and with very good reason.

Blade Type

The Bunka knife, a versatile and traditional Japanese kitchen tool, features a distinctive, angular tip and a wide blade. It's designed for precision tasks like slicing, dicing, and chopping. Ideal for handling vegetables, meat, and fish, the Bunka is a multifunctional knife celebrated for its utility and unique aesthetic.

Steel Type

Blue Steel is a traditional, high-carbon steel made by Hitachi Metals in Japan. It is the favourite steel of many knife makers and chefs across the world for it’s fantastic edge holding ability, toughness, and ease of sharpening. It contains few stainless elements, and as such will develop a patina, and may develop rust spots if left wet after use.

Recommended Maintenance
