Not all blacksmiths dreamt of being a blacksmith. Hokkaido born Kyohei Shindo however, dreamt of being a blacksmith from a young age and accomplished just that by opening up his own shop in Tosa city, in Kōchi prefecture by age 32.

His knives are characterized by having a tapering spine yet incredibly thin cutting edge, and a Tosa lacquered kurouchi finish. For the price, the out of box edge and performance of a knife like this is seldom beat.

The Nakiri is one of Shindo-san's most sought after blades. It is tall, has a hammered in mild S grind for food release, and one of the thinnest grind available. This knife is not for the beginner. Its delicate edge will pass through food like it doesn't exist. With proper care, this knife will serve you very well.
