Named after a god and designed to be striking and unique you can see the beautiful hammer finish that Raijin, the god of thunder and lightning evokes.

Raijin (雷神) is said to bring vital rains and leave a trail of chaos and destruction. We'd like to think the knives bearing his name offer a little more control in the kitchen and less destruction but it's clear from the very first glance that the unique hammer finish that adorns every blade is inspired by the raw power of Raijin and his lightning strikes.
