Nigara Hamono Ltd makes beautiful and functional art in the form of some of the most stunning kitchen knives we have seen.
During the early Edo Period, the city of Hirosaki was a castle town. There were over one hundred forging shops in the area. Nigara Forging is one of these historical Tsugaru blacksmith shops. The Nigara company has kept the traditional forging techniques alive and has remained committed to high-quality blade forging for centuries.
The handle is made with wenge wood with an attractive buffalo horn ferrule. The knife is a real stunner!
