Shindo-san is a Tosa based blacksmith to watch. Why? Because of the thin grind, and the polished Kurouchi finish, which to me felt like a Takeda, and because of the Mazaki like surgical style tip.
If you’re asking “Who is this guy”? I anticipate in the next few years everyone will know him. There is no way this smith isn’t going places.
This is the first batch of Gyutos we have received from Shindo-san. We will be getting more, but suspect these will sell out quickly. Message us if you would like us to add you to the waitlist!
