Are Honyaki knives and Japanese sword (katana) blade are made in the same way?

All mono-steel construction knives are honyaki?

How do they make "harder at edge, softer at spine" blade?


At first, I was going to talk about ...

1) If there's any, real world advantage of honyaki knives over awase / kasumi construction
( Are they really for "user knife for real kitchen work, or just a status symbol / decoration piece?)


Are they really worth the extra cost?
(The "real" honyaki knives that are made by reputable company cost at least $800 - 900, and the price keeps going up, as the older generation of blade smiths are retiring.)

... but I couldn't make them fit in 5-6 minutes time frame I was aiming.

How to practice kasturamuki video

It is not as hard as it looks.
The lack of information is the biggest problem.
(There aren't many people who teaches this kind of stuff logically.)

This used to be (sort of ) minimum requirement for Japanese kitchen knife use.
(If you can't do this, you wouldn't be allowed to cut fish ...)

These days, you don't have to do this by hand. (There are many devices for this.)

The reason they say that all the basics of the (Japanese style) knife skill is in here, is because

1) It teaches (forces) you to move the blade back and forth, not to push it against the material
2)It teaches (forces) you to close the elbows, not to move the wrist.

Naniwa vs Homemade

$85 vs $30
Full stainless steel construction vs 1" thick HDPE construction

I built mine long time ago.

When I purchased Naniwa bridge, I didn't buy from Amazon, or any online vendor.
I bought it from local store when they were doing year end sale.

So, I don't feel that bad (about having purchased Naniwa bridge.)
But now, after having used both of them enough, this is not something I'd spend $85.
