Pursuing the original functionality and beauty of knives led to the development of this “Miyako” Damascus knife. This is a very excellent Japanese knife with glorious presence.
Shizu Hamono has reproduced Damascus steel for the blade, which was prized for its beauty in ancient Syria. After mirror polishing, a matting process is performed to give it a soft luster. The blade gives a clean cut, carefully crafted by a skillful Seki forge master. You can easily carve a hard pumpkin or cut thin slices of tomato without damaging them. We are proud of the long-lasting sharpness of the blade. The handle is designed in an R-shape to fit in the hand, representing a style that Shizu Hamono has been pursuing. Please feel the comfortable grip and stable fit for yourself.
