Yoshikane Cooking Knife is made by Mr. Tsuneo Yoshida (Yoshikane Cutlery Co.) who is the third generation of Cooking Knife blacksmith and two of his relatives (Mr. Kazuomi Yamamoto and Mr. Masashi Yamamoto) in Sanjo, Nigata Japan.
I think that Mr. Yamamotos are main craftsmen making Yoshikane knives from this year.
They are little over 40 years old, and they have enough experiences for it.
Yoshikane Cutlery Co. keeps on making their knives with authentic way, such as Sohizukuri, Hganetsuke, fine finishing, etc., therefore Yoshikane can make lots of variety of cutlery.
