Yoshimitsu Hamono is a small blacksmith shop located in Nagasaki, Japan. It is currently run by five brothers who are the latest generation to have kept it in continual operation since the time when Abraham Lincoln was president! They do most of their own cladding work by inserting the hard core steel into soft iron, an operation that is currently mostly done by specialty steel mills in other parts of Japan. It is this adherence to the old techniques that originally attracted us to this maker.

This fun and functional knife resembles a cross between a cleaver and a traditional nakiri. It has the thin grinds normally associated with the vegetable cutter but it is tall like a classic Chinese cleaver. Large ingredients, big hands, or a simple desire for a taller blade are addressed with this versatile shape. It also makes food scooping a breeze.

The blade is made from the popular steel called Aogami Super (AS). This carbon rich alloy is then clad with a softer iron using the traditional san-mai construction. This gives the inner core protection and strength and results in a blade that can take and keep a super fine edge while remaining light and strong. The outer jigane features a rustic black kurouchi finish.

The blade is mated to an upgraded custom octagonal handle.
