We are very excited to bring you knives from Ashi Hamono. Ashi hamono produces their knives entirely in-house. From the blade to the handle, they do it all. Their knives are very well finished, beautiful to look at, and have very good geometry. When you hold these knives in your hand, you can really see and feel the attention to detail that Ashi gives to every knife.
Ashi refers to this set as the “With Mother” set. They designed these knives to be very unintimidating and easy to use. Ashi hopes to encourage families to cook together in the home and hopes that this set will inspire people to do so. The 130mm and 170mm sized knives are very comfortable sizes for many home cooks. The shape of the blade is similar to the santoku knives that have become so popular recently. This set can be great for home cooks looking for easy to use and unintimidating knives, or for pros looking for a few comfortable line knives for cramped quarters. Don’t let the name of the set throw you off… these are high performance knives for home cooks and pros alike. These knives are hardened to 58 HRC.

Just as with many other traditional and cultural products in Japan,
Japanese knives offer simple, yet sophisticated beauty and quality to their users. It can take some time to learn how to handle these knives correctly, but it is a rewarding experience.
