New to us here at the shop and we couldn't be happier.
Introducing knives from Nigara Hamono, located in beautiful Aomori, Japan.
Nigara hamono dates back over 350 years to the Edo period where they were first producing some of the finest swords for the Tsugaru clan of Japan. Currently in its 8th generation under the tutelage of Master smith Tsuyosho Yoshizawa. These are incredible works of art and we are pleased to introduce them to our shop.
Tako Sakimaru's are truly a professional knife. Designed for slicing the final fish before consuming, these knives are reserved for the chef and chef only. Tako (octopus) knives are designed without a tip to prevent any accidental poking into the body for an Octopus, but can be used easily for sashimi or any raw slicing.
These knives are stainless but require maintenance / drying to ensure protection to the Kurouchi finish.
Each of these knives has a unique handle. When they're gone, they're gone.
