Note: Style: Professional Multi-purpose Knife
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.

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 the beginning of 2013, Doi has passed on this line to his son, Itsuo Doi. The original Hayate line forged by master Doi has his signature stamp and serial numbers on the back of the blade to signify the order they were forged. The new Hayate line continued by master Itsuo Doi will not have serial numbers and will be engraved "itsu" in kanji on the front of the blade.

The kiritsuke is one of the few multipurpose traditional Japanese knives, and it may be used as a yanagi or usuba knife. This style of knife is traditionally only used by the executive chef in the Japanese kitchen.
