Aomori is to in the north of Japan and Nigara is one of the old and famous blacksmiths in the region that has been in operation for over a hundred years. Japan at the time was segmented into different and competing city states and each one had their own blacksmith tradition who provided their people with all sorts of metal goods including but not exclusively weapons such and swords. Nigara converted to making knives about 50 years ago but passed down all of the skills and techniques that they used in the past to create swords and other weapons.

This 180mm santoku is crafted from Shirogami, or white steel. White steel is very well known for it's edge taking capabilities. The only limitations to its sharpness are your abilities.

The cladding is stainless steel and is done in Nigaras' Hex Tsuchime finish.Although the cladding is stainless the core steel is carbon, and reactive. So care must be taken to prevent that undesired brown patina; rust. The handle is octagonal and crafted from Maple with a Buffalo Horn ferrule.
