    Yoshihiro becoming Gesshin Uraku

    We are currently in the process of transitioning our Yoshihiro knives to Gesshin Uraku. This is being done for a number of reasons. First and foremost is to stop the confusion with regard to the lines we were selling and the lines other companies were selling. We got a lot of questions about our white #2 single bevel knives from them and how they were different from the Yoshihiro Kasumi line being sold elsewhere. The line we carry (now Gesshin Uraku) had better fit and finish, better consistency of grind, less issues with warping, less high and low spots, and in my experience a better heat treatment... Kind of like the difference between kasumi and hon-kasumi.

    In addition, this change is an opportunity for us to improve quality control and maintain a line with the quality of knives we feel comfortable with.

    Anyways, you can find the Gesshin Uraku knives on our website here:

    Some old links to our yoshihiro knives may also no longer work, so if you cant find what you are looking for, please just ask.

    Thanks.

    -Jon

    Are you sure you haven't already had a hell of a lot to drink? The prices are very reasonable.

    the stainless wa-gyutos, wa-suji, and wa-petty are a moly stainless at 60hrc. Its a tough steel that resists chipping well and has good edge retention.

    Will the Kanji be changing to reflect the new name?
