History and curiosity
Muneishi-hamono was founded in 1955, Mr. Hirotaka Muneishi, the second generation blacksmith, makes forest knives such as axes and machetes, and Mr. Kosuke Muneishi, the third generation blacksmith, forges kitchen knives. Kosuke Muneishi does all the steps himself: quenching, forging, hammering and cutting the knives.
This blade is made with an Aogami #2 steel core, a steel with a hardness of approximately 62-63 HRC. The core has a stainless steel cladding with a kurouchi finish to make it easier to maintain .
To sublimate this blade, we combined it with a handle made of stabilized maple burl, ebony spacers, bolster and bottom cap in black oak burl.
