Description

For 50 years, Master Kawamura has manufactured handmade knives in his workshop. His work was broadcast by national TV channel NHK.

Mr. kawamura is currently in his 70s and has no successor, so his knives are expected to become rare in the future.

Forged enough to perform maximum steel quality, and the shape is very beautiful as an art. Shirogami carbon steel is not stainless. To avoid oxidation, it is recommended clean and dry after use.

  1. Blade  : The edge of carbon steel called Shirogami is integrated in stainless steel. Shirogami is a steel manufactured by Hitachi Metals used for traditional Japanese knives. It is easy to rust, but it is sharper and easier to sharpen than a stainless steel knife.

  2. Handle : Chestnut wood with plastic in classic shape (For use with right hand).
