  •  The Hayate series was originally developed by Suisin to showcase the work of Kejiro Doi, an extremely talented blacksmith from Sakai.  His work has been in demand for years, but sadly, he retired a couple of years ago.  We've been sitting on some old stock, forged by the retired master.  Knives by Kejiro Doi-san are extremely rare nowadays... especially brand new ones.  These were also sharpened by Yukinori Oda, another retired master craftsman from Sakai.  The Hayate Light series features the same blade from the Hayate series, but comes with a ho wood handle, instead of ebony, and doesn't come with a wooden display box.  These knives are extremely rare nowadays, and feature the work of two extremely well known and well respected craftsmen, both of whom are now retired and not producing new works.

    Doi-san's work is known for its toughness, ease of sharpening, resistance to warping, and edge retention. When ordering from craftsmen, it's possible to ask for different levels of work, but this series represents both craftsman's highest end work.
