If you are in search of a Damascus clad kitchen knife, crafted with the wisdom of over 350 years of smithing experience, your journey concludes at Nigara Hamono. Originating from Aomori prefecture in Northern Japan, Nigara Hamono boasts a legacy of quality and versatility, evident in their diverse offerings from cutlery to structural steel beams.
If you cherish the signature Anmon Kurozome Damascus pattern of Nigara's flagship line but yearn for a dash more flair, then the Rainbow Damascus line with blue (aogami) 2 core steel might just be your heart's desire. Expect the familiar pattern but with an added vibrancy from the brass and copper folded into the cladding. Over time, the reactive core of blue #2 steel will cultivate layers of distinctive features, with patina-ed core and hints of stainless nestled amidst copper and brass dreamscapes.
Our 255mm sujihiki, a name translating to "flesh slicer", is an unconventional length designed for the effortless slicing of small to large portions of meat with minimal tearing. At 255mm, it strikes a perfect balance for those torn between the standard 240mm and the more daunting 270mm. This knife, augmented with an aggressive k-tip, brings unparalleled versatility to your culinary endeavours.
We believe in offering you the highest degree of personalization, similar to the thrill of using a custom kitchen builder software. Get the knife you want, paired with a handle that matches your aesthetic. We collaborate with multiple custom handle makers to provide you with a handle that meets your unique specifications. With us, you don't need to settle.
