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 who have made a significant contribution to their craft in a particular region. This finely crafted series of SG2 alloy kitchen knives is a testament to his skills and dedication to his art.

Art is a suitable adjective to describe this great looking sujihiki. The stunning damascus look is achieved by forging multiple layers of stainless steel over the core of SG2 alloy. The knife is constructed in the san-mai style so one can see these layers when viewing the spine of the blade from above. The upper portion of the blade is etched to reveal the cladding and the lower portion is ground to achieve the fine edge and further reveal more of the hagane. It is a lovely look that, together with the nicely chiseled kanji script, results in a dramatic-looking blade, high in aesthetic value.

270mm sujihikis are the standard slicing knives of choice in many kitchens. They are all-around slicers capable of processing almost most ingredients. The Kamo sujihiki is a fairly light blade, but no laser, with a medium height and thickness. It has a sharp and precise feel to it. The profile is quite flat with a small lifted tip.Fit and finish are very good indeed.

The stainless construction ensures that daily maintenance will be kept to a minimum while a high degree of edge sharpness is attainable with little effort. We think you will love this knife as it's one of our favorites!

      Shiro Kamo SG2 Damascus Petty 120 mm Ironwood, April 19, 2022
    Posted By: Chris Kagan

    This is an outstanding knife, beautifully made and extremely sharp. It is very enjoyable to use and look at. If there are any criticisms, I would say the pins could be completely flush, and they are almost completely flush, and while not a criticism the steel does chip easily, but that is my not being careful enough. The design is so gorgeous that a friend who makes knives used the model for his next knife creation. Highly recommended. It is worth the extra cost for this quality.
