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.
These knives are stainless but require maintenance / drying to ensure protection to the Kurouchi finish.
The photos really don't do these incredible knives justice.
Each of these knives has a unique acrylic handle. When they're gone, they're gone.
