Masakage Hamono offers a unique selection of hand made Japanese knives. This small company deals directly with many of the blacksmiths in Takefu Village. Shibata-san, the owner of the company, selects different styles from each smith to form a great group of knives and he finish sharpens them himself with a high degree of skill. These knives are a true pleasure to own and use. We have selected several of their top knife lines that use high quality steels and attractive finishes. All of the Masakage knives we offer are good for left or right handed users since they have equal edge grinds and octagonal or oval handles.
