Shiro Kamo SG2 Damascus Santoku 165mm. Kamo san was just 47 years old when 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. We have been fans of his for many years and have recently been able to source some new stock from this popular blacksmith.
