Hinoki Chef's Knife

Hinoki is a new brand out of Melbourne, Australia that has embarked on a mission to create some of the finest kitchen tools you've ever seen. Their first product is a Hattori Hanzō-level S1 Gyuto Chef's Knife that is crafted by third-generation Master Bladesmiths in Sakai, Osaka, Japan, where each knife undergoes a 131 step process. 

This process involves hand-forging a Black Carbon 1 blade that uses White Steel #1, a carbon steel that is said to be the closest material to Tamahagane, which was used to make Japanese swords. The handles are offered in three types of wood: charred American Walnut, solid American Walnut, and European Oak. Each properly-weighted wood handle has its own unique finishing process, all of which are equipped with black steel bolsters.
