Haruki Miyazaki-San crafted this authentic Hakata using Silver Steel #3, also known as Ginsan, with a hammered tsuchime finish. The blade was forged in Gotō, an island in Nagasaki, Japan, located in the far west of the country. The knife was assembled at the Kakushin shop and features a custom handle handmade in the Netherlands. Not only is this rust-resistant Hakata a unique blade-to-handle combination, but it is also well-ground and extremely sharp, making it a beautiful addition to any collection.

A type of Japanese bunka, and is characterized by its broad, rectangular-shaped blade with a slight curve towards an aggressive tip. The blade is typically sharpened to a very thin edge, allowing for precision cutting and slicing. Often used for chopping vegetables, slicing meats, and even preparing fruits, it's a popular go-to chef knife,

One unique feature of the Hakata knife is its tall heel (wide blade), which allows for the user to use a rocking motion while cutting more than a bunka that would have some resemblance.  Overall, the Hakata knife is a highly-regarded and versatile tool in Japanese cuisine, and its unique shape and history make it a favorite among both professional chefs, home cooks and even Japanese knife collectors.
