History and curiosity
Since its establishment in 2013, H&K Co. Ltd has sought out the best products Japan has to offer. In 2019, we developed our original brand “Hatsukokoro”. The word Hatsukokoro comes from the Japanese proverb “don’t forget your original intention”.
Due to the contracts stipulated between the brand and the blacksmiths, sometimes the identity of certain blacksmiths remains a mystery, which makes things a little more exciting.
Tateo Myojin is a highly skilled blacksmith based in the city of Tosa and the mastermind behind this series of Shirasagi knives, made from Shirogami steel. Shirogami steel is considered one of the purest due to its composition. It offers us the possibility of expecting a razor-sharp edge with good thread retention. These knives have great attention to detail.
Handcrafted, the handle is made of poplar burl, faux ivory spacer and palm wood ferrule.
