History and curiosity
Haruki Miyazaki-san is a 35-year-old blacksmith from the Goto Islands in Nagasaki Prefecture. He decided to become a blacksmith and apprentice under Ooba-san in Fukuoka.
After 5 years of apprenticeship, he learned all the basic skills of blacksmithing and returned to his native island, where he opened his own workshop. He continued to travel throughout Japan, learning and mastering new skills from other blacksmiths and knifemakers on his travels.
Miyazaki works alone in his small forge, doing everything by hand. All his knives are hand laminated, heat treated with pine charcoal and water tempered.
Made with san mai structure, with super aogami steel core and soft iron coating. The iron clad is hand laminated to obtain a pretty damascus pattern. Due to its water quenching, aogami super steel has a hardness of 64-65 HRC, which allows this blade to be razor sharp, having the ability to hold the edge for a very long time.
Finally, the handle is made with a burl of black ash, spacer in resin and silver nickel, bolster in pearly resin.
Note: the handle has a natural deformation of the wood that we decided to keep, this makes the handle even more unique 😉 “see photo”
