Product description

Nigara Hamono, nestled in the historic Hirosaki of Aomori Prefecture, Japan, stands as a testament to over 350 years of heritage. With roots tracing back to the Edo period, the legacy continues to thrive under the stewardship of the current generation. Notably, the esteemed Kunitoshi Nigara, a former member of the Nigara hamono family during the Showa period, earned acclaim as a renowned swordsmith, garnering accolades for his masterpieces.

Guided by the vision of 7th generation President Mr. Toshiju Yoshizawa, Nigara Hamono adorns the culinary landscape with its innovative damascus patterns, a testament to their commitment to innovation.

The Kurozume Damascus Kiritsuke Yanagiba, a pinnacle of their artistry, is a fusion of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary innovation. Hand-forged damascus cladding conceals Aogami 2 high carbon steel, the heartbeat of the cutting edge. Etched to unveil a captivating damascus pattern, the blade retains a darkened carbon steel allure. The sharpening work is a testament to precision, featuring a meticulously ground ura and a fine cutting edge.

Key Specifications:
