The "Anmon" is Nigara Hamono's flagship range, inspired by the natural beauty of the Anmon waterfalls in the Shirakami Sanchi National Park. Each knife in the Anmon series is unique, the patterns formed by the forging of 25 layers of steel to create a high performance knife that is also extremely collectable and stunningly beautiful.
