These beautiful knives are made by Master Blacksmith Kamo-san from Takefu Village in Japan. It's rare to find blacksmiths who excel with both grinding and forging but Kamo-san is one of them. He works with a very small crew of just two other workmen. While many shops farm their blades out to various workmen for the different stages of manufacture, Kamo-san keeps these operations in house and under his personal supervision.

Constructed from White #2 carbon steel, the knife is then clad with reactive Damascus steel for a beautiful looking blade that will gain character as patina forms on the blade with use. The face etching is very well realized and reveals a lovely pattern from the cladding layers. This is a light blade but one that feels strong in the hand. Edge sharpness out of the box is excellent, as are the overall fit and finish.

The blade shape is fairly conventional for this type of knife, featuring a fine tip and slight belly and it will excel with push and pull cutting. We are now supplying these knives with a beautiful sandalwood D-shaped handle with a black pakkawood ferrule. This is a really fun knife and one that will surprise you with its ability to perform many tasks around the kitchen. Itís also a great and inexpensive way to experience White #2 steel.

      One beast of a knife, August 7, 2020
    Posted By: Nick - verified customer

    this knife is by far one of my favorites to add to my collection and use at work. At first I was upset due to me not reading the description and finding out the handle was asymmetrical, but using a pinch grip it feels comfortable in my hand. I've been using it for a week doing prep work and can say I'm very satisfied with every single aspect of this knife.
