Yoshikane operates a small, family-run forge in Sanjo, Niigata and has been making kitchen knives since 1919. They deserve their good reputation for excellent forging and heat treatments, which make for easy sharpening and great edge life for both single and double bevel knives. This is especially true about the thin grinds provided on double bevel knives. For middle-weight Japanese knives, they cut like a much thinner blade.
