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.

A 240mm sujihiki - sujihiki literally translates to "flesh slicer" - is a very typical length for slicing a small portion of meat in one single swooping motion, or a larger portion of meat sawing back and forth with minimal tearing.
