  • The Hotaru series is a super thin SG2 (powdered stainless steel) from the Takefu region of Fukui Prefecture. The goal of this series was to create a very thin, relatively tall, and stainless series that would be easy to use and care for. They are relatively easy to sharpen, take a nice edge, hold it for a very long time, and move through food quite easily. The brushed finish runs from heel to tip, making it easy to clean up and maintain for end users at home. They feature ho wood octagon handles and rounded spines and choils, making them very comfortable in hand. We hope you enjoy this offering designed and made together with one of the younger craftsmen from the Takefu area.
