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.

Blue (aogami) #2 is the steel used for the cutting core of this knife. A steel with added chromium and tungsten for added toughness. Despite the cladding being carbon, the kurouchi finish helps prevent the quick formation of rust. This line has gorgeous contrast from the polished cutting edge, to a smokey cladding and kurouchi above the shinogi. Easy on the eyes, sharp on the cutting board.

Sure at 270mm, you could probably go with the traditional shaped sujihiki. But that's boring! Spice up your life with a sakimaru slicer instead. Same purpose as the sujihiki (translates to flesh cutting), but with a samurai sword tip (also known as a tanto). These knives are especially popular for when you have guests over. Want a talking piece? This could be the one.

Lastly, to adorn this gorgeous slicer, we keep it simple and classy with a rosewood wa handle.
