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 excel 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 try to refrain from recommending items at the site, but IMO, this knife must be recognized. I was hesitant to make the purchase due to the knife's height, but she has asserted herself as my favorite ever paring knife. Edge retention that lasts beyond a parer's duty, and an ergonomic that, surprisingly, fits my oven-mitt hands perfectly. Two 240 gyutos, a 150 petty, and said 90 paring has left me with great respect for Kamo-San's offerings.
