Everything is handmade. The original knife made by a blacksmith.
Yasugi Aogami No. 2 steel is forged by hand, and each knife is hand-sharpened to create a sharp, long-lasting knife. The handle uses a chestnut pattern, so it is durable and goes well with the black-finished blade. It is also lighter and easier to handle than regular plywood handles.
Maeda Blacksmith Factory (Honkyuichi Hamono) is a blacksmith in Shimabara City, Nagasaki Prefecture. Since 1895, the company has been manufacturing everyday necessities such as knives, sickles, and hoes by utilizing the skills of swordsmiths, and currently the fourth and fifth generations are working hard to make knives.
