Tetsujin Hamono is a brand bringing two highly skilled individuals together. Naohito Myojin as the sharpener, also the current sharpener behind the Konosuke Fujiyama FM line. And Toru Tamura as the smith. Together their products are typically quite 'showy' in terms of steel, most popular for their "Metal Flow", as well as provide the user with gorgeous well executed finishes thanks to Myojin-san.

For those that have been in the Japanese kitchen knife business for a while, there is something particular about pairing blue (aogami) steel #2 with the ethereal finish of kasumi. Here, the kasumi is on soft carbon steel meaning it will change, fade, and react over time to create patterns so beautiful you'll think their mirages. See what I did there? Ethereal, mirages, throwing in all the big words. That's because these knives are worth throwing in the big words.

Some knife-style definitions aren't worth reinventing, and this is the case with the santoku. Santoku translates to “three virtues” or “three uses”; slice, dice, chop. Though a santoku is suitable for just about anyone as a very multi-purpose knife, those that like to rock chop or have limited space in the kitchen will particularly enjoy this knife style. If you've been looking for a longer santoku, this 180mm might be what you need to more easily julienne your bell peppers and anything else you want to slice, dice, and chop.

This wonderful blade comes with no handle.
