Founded in 1933, Sukenari has gained a reputation for quality. Using the same technique that is used to craft samurai swords, Sukenari has been certified to create Honyaki knives that are unsurpassed in their edge retention and durability as well as their cutting edge. This technique, however, is extremely difficult and time consuming.
In recent days, Sukenari has begun forging knives from High Speed Steels, such as R2 and HAP-40 while maintaining the same blade quality and edge retention. Sukenari always tries to improve on the quality and performance of their knives.
