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 was therefore made with an Aogami #2 steel core, a steel with a hardness of approximately 62-63 HRC. The core has a stainless steel coating with a kurouchi finish to make it easier to maintain this blade.
The handle was made with a stabilized and dyed bkackash burl, spacers in maple, resin and copper.
