Size: 300 mm
Description: Master Artisan in Traditional Blacksmithing Arts, Mr. Keijiro Doi entered the world of Sakai City's traditional hand-forged knife crafting at the age of nineteen as an apprentice to his father, Kazuo Doi. Determined to master his chosen art, the younger Doi applied discipline and hard work to achieve the highest level of craftsmanship, perfecting his skill in the most challenging area of low temperature forging and producing the singularly sharp blades indispensable to professional chefs.

Master Doi lives and works by his motto, "A good craftsman never stops learning about his art," and has been improving his technique daily for 60 years. As of 2013, Master Kenjiro Doi has officially retired and passed on his legacy to his son, Itsuo Doi.

Suisin Aya is Master Itsuo Doi's beautiful line of traditional Japanese knives.
