History and curiosity
Nagakawa-san apprenticed with legendary master blacksmith Kenichi Shiraki who created the Shiraki Hamono brand, until becoming its leader when Shiraki-san retired. In 2005 Nakagawa-san changed the brand name to Nakagawa Hamono.
Nakagawa-san is today one of the renowned blacksmiths when it comes to high-end artisanal cutlery. He works with all types of steel, but where you can appreciate all his mastery of heat treatments is with Ginsan, Aogami #1 and Shirogami #1 steels.
Forged from Aogami #1 steel with a soft damask iron coating, giving us a hardness of approximately 63 HRC. In addition, the part concerning the sharpening and finishing of the blade has been entrusted to Naohito Myojin, one of the most recognized master sharpeners of the moment. Which sublimate the work of the blacksmith with a breathtaking blade geometry and a polishing entirely with natural stone.
The handle is handcrafted in dyed and stabilized black ash burl with mother-of-pearl inclusions, mammoth molar and silver nickel spacer, mother-of-pearl resin ferrule.
