The S1 Gyuto Chef's Knife



Crafted by third generation Master Bladesmiths Artboard 1 Yauchi San in Sakai, Osaka — the ancient centre of Japanese bladesmithing — utilising a process consisting of 131 individual production steps personalised to the owners aesthetic taste, the S1 Gyuto Chef's Knife is a highly versatile precision instrument at home in any kitchen, transforming even the most arduous tasks into multi-sensory moments of pure delight.

The Blade



Hinoki exclusively uses the purest form of carbon, White Steel #1 — the closest material to tamahagane, the steel originally used to craft Japanese swords — to completely hand-forge its Black Carbon 1 Blades. Utilising a jealously guarded technique we render the blade a stunning black to create a knife that is extraordinarily sharp with exceptional edge retention and a pleasure to resharpen.

The Anatomy



The hyper-refined silhouette takes inspiration from the beloved gyuto knife profile. Details include beautifully rounded off edges on the heel, to increase in-hand comfort, a chamfered spine that slowly tapers toward the agile front tipThe Blades front tip has been designed to precisely score proteins and vegetables — scoring, for the uninitiated is the technique of making a number of shallow cuts or insertions across the surface of proteins or vegetables to speed up cooking time, increase surface area or in the case of meat to encourage more even cooking. and a subtle 50° angle integrated into the double bevelledHinoki double bevel blades feature geometrically perfect cutting edges between 15° - 18°, allowing for for both left and right-handed use. These fine angles will slice through ingredients with ease and apply less pressure on the muscles and joints in the hand. chin which enhances fluidity of motion as the striking, hand-sculpted curve effortlessly slices through ingredients with aerodynamic efficiency, releasing them with minimal intervention.Black Carbon 1 utilises a subtle grain in its structuring, this assists in the the reduction of aerodynamic drag and ensures ingredients are released when cut and with minimal damage, safeguarding the flavours locked inside.

The Handle



The striking S1 Handle is a study in duality and refinement; tactile, hand carved hardwoods are crowned by a cool, blackened steel bolster, adding a discreet accent to the textural variations of the wood — all culminating in a precisely weighted grip working in perfect harmony with the Blade, promoting fatigue free use and swift manoeuvring for both left and right-handed users.

The Hand Carved Wood



Carved of solid American Walnut, the wood’s grain has been rendered in a stunning all black finish using the traditional Japanese treatment shou sugi ban, an ancient process that first involves charring the wood with fire, cooling it, cleaning it, and finishing it with a natural oil — this is done not merely for aesthetics but to preserve the wood for longer and prevent decay.

Care Guide

Artboard 28

In order to protect and preserve our jewel like precision instruments for as long as possible, we recommend following these guidelines.

General Tips:

Hand wash the blade in warm water and towel dry, immediately after use. We recommend using a soft cloth for this process.

Always cut on a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on glass, marble, china, a plate or anything that is harder than the steel of the blade.

Store knives in a way that the blades are not able to knock into other objects — we recommend storing your Series 1 Knife in either the handmade box it comes in or the Hinoki Companion Knife Sheath.

Sharpen your Hinoki Knives using either Japanese waterstones [preferably with a grit of between #1000 to #1200] or a ceramic honing rod — never use metal sharpening equipment or honing stones to sharpen the blade.

Things to avoid:

Do not use the knife to cut into bones, frozen food or very thick skinned ingredients.

Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher. Also avoid washing the blade with abrasive scrubbers or dishwashing powders as this can damage the finish.

Don’t leave your knife wet any longer than necessary, never put away wet or dirty and ensure you don’t sheath the blade without ensuring it is clean and dry.

We would strongly advise against sharpening your knives with metal sharpening equipment or honing stones of any kind.

Do not expose your knives to heat.

Never twist, cleave or warp the blade.

Maintaining Carbon Steel Blades:

Black Shirogami 1 Carbon Steel is not in its natural element when exposed to water, with this in mind always clean and completely dry your carbon steel blade after each use to prevent rust and oxidisation. Should you not be comfortable with owning a carbon steel blade, we would recommend the Brushed VG10 Stainless Steel option for ease of care.

In celebrating the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, be aware that carbon steel blades will naturally develop their own unique patina over time as they interact with the various food acids within the ingredients you are cutting and the environment in which they are used.

We recommend pairing our carbon steel blades with Hinoki Companion Knife Oil — specially formulated with Japanese Camellia Oil and Bee Propolis, both renowned for their rust resistant qualities and containing molecules that naturally inhibit metal corrosion.


Step 1: Before applying the Companion Knife Oil, ensure the blade has been cleaned and is completely dry.

Step 2: Apply a small coin sized amount of oil to a fine cloth or apply three dots directly to the blade.

Step 3: Glide the cloth over both sides of the blades body, ensuring a light even coat.

Step 4: Prior to its next use, simply wash the knife under running cold water to remove any traces of oil and dry thoroughly.

Maintaining Wood:

Our natural hardwoods have been finished in a specially formulated food safe and water resistant wood oil — this is generally the only oil we would recommend come in contact with our handles, anything else may cause staining.

Wooden handles should not be immersed in water. When exposed to water we would recommend drying the handle thoroughly, ensuring you get rid of any dampness as soon as possible after each use.

As wood is a living material, variations in colour and pigmentation will occur and it’s appearance will change overtime.

Over time the wood oil will slowly wear off. When this does occur you may send it to us for a complimentary recoating as part of The Renewal Service.
