Shizu Hamono is a relatively “new” knife maker, established in 1960 in Seki by the Shizu family. Producing a stable Kuro-uchi finish on stainless steel was challenging, so they tackled it head-on with the goal of producing “Real Kuro-uchi”(meaning no coats or dyes) knives to achieve high performance with classic beauty and ease of care. After 29 months of research and development, they finally found the technique to create a real kuro-uchi finish on stainless steel.
VG10 Stainless steel makes these knives super sharp, reliable, and easy to care for while the pakkawood handles are elegant and rugged.
