  • Tsukasa Hinoura is the third generation of blacksmiths carrying on the Ajikataya brand, working with his son Mutsumi-san. Hinoura-san is well known for the quality of his work, especially his "Tsukasa" line. We brought in this line so that more people could try Hinoura-san's work. Moreover, whenever we get a chance, we do our best to support young craftsmen, such as his son.

    Hinoura-san's heat treatment is top notch, and his style reflects a lot of the regional attributes. These knives have an exceptional distal taper, and wonderful wide bevel, which facilitates thinning and sharpening.
