Collection: Soryu VG-10 Honyaki Series

The Honyaki process is one of the most difficult methods to construct a knife with only a handful of knife makers in Japan who can successfully pull it off. Since only 1 type of steel is used in forging, it requires extreme precision and dedication to get the right temperature & tempering. The handle and Saya are made from traditional Wenge wood, one of the densest woods available.

The Sakai Takayuki "Sho-Ryo" (昇竜) is hand-forged with entirely VG10 stainless steel, having gone through the Honyaki process, and Takayuki's superb grinding and sharpening.
