One of the most stunning mid sized petty knives we've ever seen and an absolute joy to behold.

Hinoura san has created a superbly well finished and balanced knife with a design that has drawn so many comments and so much praise from his many admirers over the years and we're most certainly among them!

First Impressions

Right out of the box, you can tell you're holding a truly special knife, sharpness is comparable to some of the best knives we sell.


This is an absolutely spellbinding collection of knives. Hinoura san has worked his magic in using copper and brass to create the vivid rainbow pattern running the length of the cladding steel.

We chose to pair the knife with an ebony and white buffalo handle to create what we think is one of the best looking knives we've ever sold.

In Hand

The knives are exceptionally thick for their size, the petty flares out significantly as it nears the handle and so for their size we felt they benefitted from a medium sized wa handle instead of a more typical small one which balances out the knife nicely and feels excellent in the hand.


Hinoura san has crafted a knife that is intended to last many years and be passed down to family members if you care for it correctly.

Our Verdict

The rainbow damascus collection is a true collectors knife and a really top class piece of work that is worth absolutely every penny of its price tag.

Due to the scarcity of supply of these knives we would suggest you don't wait too long if you are interested in adding one to your collection whenever they're available!

We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.

Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.
