Bread knife (large) Fruit knife (small) ca. 1950 and Bread cutting board ca. 1960.
Yoshida studied Chinese folk crafts and interacted with local craftsmen, establishing the Huabei Shenghuo Gonyi-dian shop in Beijin in 1943. These knives are said to have been inspired by the shape of Chinese broadswords (qinlondao). The shape of the board is simple, yet beautifully rounded. There is a groove along the edge of the board for collecting bread crumbs.
