Haruki Miyazaki-san, born in 1985, is a young blacksmith from Goto, Nagasaki. For five years, he apprenticed under Toshio Ooba-san who is known for his hakata knives (a regional variation of the bunka). After the apprenticeship, he travelled all over Japan to gain some more knowledge from other blacksmiths. Miyazaki-san also learned from the famous blacksmith Yukinori Shirataka-san (†2017) who was considered a living national treasure.

In 2011, he finally decided to open his own workshop. He makes various knives using aogami#2, shirogami#2, aogami super, and ginsan. He is also known for his "Tsubaki knife" or the hakata.


This model is slightly taller and longer compared to the 2021 version.

Care Instructions

Japanese kitchen knives requires some attention. It's crucial to pay attention to the following points.

Correct use
• Always use the appropriate knife for the task.
• Refrain from moving the knife in a lateral direction while cutting. Use the thrust-cutting technique. 
• Avoid bones and frozen food.
• Always use a wooden or rubbing cutting board. Avoid hard plastic, glass, or marble. 

• Wash and dry the blade as soon as you're done with it especially carbon steel knives.
• Always wash your Japanese kitchen knife by hand. Never use a dishwasher.

Knife maintenance
 Use sharpening whetstones to sharpen or touch up your Japanese knife. In general, honing rods are not recommended as using these will cause damage to the edge. Honing rods are for western knives. Electric sharpeners and pull through sharpeners should never be used on Japanese kitchen knives.
