Don't forget these...

Tsunehisa Hamono is a brand located out of Tosa, Japan. Their aim is to bridge the gap between bringing consumers quality handmade knives, at an affordable price. Because not everyone wants unnecessary bells and whistles driving the price up of their knife when all they want is solid build and good performance.

A core steel of Aogami Super (blue super steel) with a hammered (tsuchime) kurouchi finish, wrapped in stainless. It's all the Japanese kitchen knife hype words in one package. These knives have a hardness rating of ~63 which means they benefit from the crazy edge retention of Aogami Super, without suffering too much from edge brittleness. 

A bunka is already a very versatile knife, but you know that already if you are looking to pick this one up. A cross between a nakiri and a santoku with a k-tip. At 175mm, this bunka is just a little longer than most to keep things interesting. Your favourite knife shape just got a little more badass.

Rosewood and ebony are typically considered premium materials for handles. Here, you get both of these prized woods in one custom WA handle.
