Kamo R2 Gyuto 210mm. Shiro Kamo knives are made by Master Blacksmith Kamo-san from Takefu. Kamo-san has a small crew of only 2 other workmen currently in his shop. It's rare to find blacksmiths that excell with both grinding and forging. When Kamo-san was just 47 years old, he was awarded the "Dento-Kogei-shi" title which stands for "master of traditional crafts" and is given only to a select few artisans that have a significant contribution to their craft in a particular region.

Owner Shiro Kamo Start of business 1955 Founder Tokichi Kamo "Our company has been in business for over 40 years, and we would like to deliver excellent products and we are willing to create knives that you would have emotional attachment. Knife industry is aging. I am the youngest business owner. I would like to be a business owner that would support future development. Additionally, I would like to create new skills and preserve traditional skills, and at the same time, I would like to hand on those skills to the next generation. Currently, we are producing special knives, such as soba-cutting, paper-cutting, fish-filleting, or any other knives for special purpose that provide easiness of use. We use different materials and change shapes for different usage. In the future, I would like to expand our business and I would like to make knives that anybody can recognize who made them."

    I love the workmanship and quality of this knife. It cuts well out of the box, and I find it perfectly balanced. I was also very happy with the service from ChefsKnivesToGO... overall, very happy!

    I don't know if it was just the knife I received (which I returned) the fit and finish for a knife at this price range was not very good, but comparable to other R2 steel knives they are a good price for the steel
