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.
We are suckers for a short slicer. And this one may be our new shop favourite.
