Haruyuki Goma blades are said to look like “Waves striking the beach at moonlight”. How romantic is that?
Functionally speaking, they offer great looks combined with great performance and ruggedness. If you're buying your first fancy knife, or giving one as a gift, you can't do better than the Goma. Ultimately the knife you choose should have good looks, but it should also be a bit more rugged than some of our higher-end knives. For these reasons, this series is our top seller for wedding and Christmas gifts. Many chefs in the know buy anHaruyuki Goma for themselves because they’re great little workers and don’t break the bank.

These knives are hand sharpened and hand-honed with a 50/50 double bevel edge, making them great performers in the kitchen. The unique tsuchime finish (hand hammered dimples) allows the blade to slide through food without sticking with the added bene t of a distinctive looking blade.
