iiza launches YOBOCHO Series for professionals following last year’s iF WABOCHO award. A bladesmith with an industrial family history of over 70 years has created four types of double-edged kitchen knife sets, utilizing the hammer techniques of the Echizen forged knife industry. The blade is of the best grade core steel with a multilayer exterior, known as "clad metal". Its distinctions are an excellent sharpness with magnificent patterns created through forging. Display cases fastened by magnets beautifully compliment the knife sets. YOBOCHO handles and cases are coated in environmentally safe material for protection and ease of cleaning.
