  • Tsukasa Hinoura is the third generation of blacksmith carrying on "Ajikataya", working with his son.  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, Mutsumi-san (who is about the same age as Sara and I).

    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.

    *This knife does not come with a saya. The product photos will be updated shortly.
