About Hinoura Hamono 日野浦 刃物

With roots tracing back to the Meiji era, Hinoura Hamono stands as a testament to impeccable craftsmanship and tradition. Founded by Shintaro Hinoura and now led by the father-son duo, Tsukasa and Mutsumi Hinoura, the brand has crafted unparalleled knives for over 100 years in Sanjo city, Niigata. Their knives are not just tools but an expression of the artisan's soul, revered by top-tier knife artisans in Japan.

Care & Maintenance

Shirogami #2 steel, while renowned for its sharpness, is not stainless. Ensure the knife is wiped dry after each use. Over time, a patina will develop, which is natural for carbon steel. Avoid cutting bones, frozen foods, and hard fruit pits. Use wood or rubberized cutting boards for best results. For sharpening, using whetstones is recommended.
