The Hayate is a special line created exclusively by Master Blacksmith Itsuo Doi for the Knife System Company. Master Doi forged his top of the line knives by joining a large blue carbon steel #2 billet with the soft iron body at the lowest temperature possible. The technique is incredibly difficult and is practiced by only the most highly skilled craftsmen in Japan. This remarkable method results in the Hayate’s superior blade strength and edge life. Master Doi took up the mantle of his father, Master Kejiro Doi, when he retired in 2013.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. Each knife is elegantly adorned with an ebony wood handle and presented in a wooden box.
