Hatsukokoro Hyomon White #2 Hand Laminated Damascus Gyuto 210mm Purchase options

A truly magnificent knife made and finished to the highest standards by one of the best blacksmiths.

First Impressions

Utterly stunning and made in very limited numbers, it's subtle, intricate and paired with a preimum karin wood handle the knife is out of this world. With an edge and profile that will simply fall through food.

Primarily known for his excellent work on the knives from Konosuke, Nihei san is an outstanding blacksmith who has trained in Sanjo at Yoshikane Hamono and this is a true work of art from his hands.

Beauty

A picture is worth a thousand words for this knife and the detail from the tip to the end of the handle is stunning so we'll point you back to the gallery at the top of the page on this one and to the quick view video below! 

Our Verdict

Unquestionably a collectors piece, this is a premium knife made with the highest levels of skill and attention to detail from the exceptional edge, the damascus finish and stunning karin wood handle that you would expect from Nihei san and is certainly piece for the connoisseur.
