We are huge fans of the knives that come from the Nigara Hamono workshop, located in Hirosaki. They range from the simple to the exotic, all carrying the same high levels of design, fit, and finish.

The Nigara Ginsan Kiritsuke 210mm is the first knife we have received from them using one of our favorite stainless steels, Ginsan or Silver 3. This steel is made by Hitachi Metals and in the hands of a good blacksmith, can offer similar sharpness and edge retention to carbon steel. It is the favored stainless steel for use in making Japanese traditional style single bevel knives. It is rare that such blades are made from any stainless steel and this shows how similar Ginsan can be to a high carbon alloy in many regards.

The inner core is covered in a multi-layer damascus softer stainless steel for added protection, ease of manufacture, and lightness. The cladding also receives a beautiful hammered tsuchime finish that adds a dramatic look to the knife.

This is a western style kiritsuke knife, so it is ground on both sides of the blade for ease of use and maintenance. The edge profile is flat to the mid-point, where it transitions into a nicely curved belly all the way to that fantastic reverse tanto tip. A really well made rosewood handle is a perfect match to the blade both functionally and aesthetically.

The Nigara Ginsan Kiritsuke 210mm is a perfectly sized kitchen knife for chefs of all stripes who are wanting a mid-weight, mid-length tool that can pretty much tackle any ingredient with ease and style.
