Hatsukokoro is a brand in Japan which encompasses some very talented knife makers. The advantage of such a relationship is that one brand can then offer a variety of knives using the steels makers are most skilled at crafting with. This logic extends to finishes, patterns and even handle materials. It's like getting only the best a knife maker has to offer.

For this line, Takahiro Nihei displays his skill in using carbon steel like a secret ingredient in a cooking show. Utilizing it in as many ways as possible from the incredibly popular blue super carbon steel core to iron Damascus cladding and a kurouchi finish. This is not a knife line for those faint of heart. These knives are prone to rusting so ensure to employ proper carbon steel knife car.

A 210mm gyuto is by far one of our most popular knife styles and length. Whether you are a home cook or a busy on the line professional chef, there's just something about 210mm that fits the sweet spot for most. Kind of like having a shoe that's half a size larger so when you decide to put on a warmer pair of socks, the shoe still fits seamlessly. To tie it back to knives, what we mean is, 210mm is a very versatile length which belongs in any kitchen!
