    My new vegetable knife is a Gihei 165mm Nakiri ZDP189 with Keyaki Handle, a gift from @maxkiesler “Gihei knives are forged and hand ground in Tsubame Sanjo Niigata at their small family business [by father and son team of Atsushi Hosokawa and Takashi Hosokawa]. Gihei works in some old style steels like shirogami and aogami and also works with new alloys such as ZDP-189.” As a former metal sculptor myself, I really appreciate this level of craft by the Hosokawa family! @bernalcutlery
