  • Isamitsu Hamono Shiroichi Kurouchi Gyuto 210mm

    About Isamitsu hamono - At Knifewear, supporting the future of blacksmithing has always been one of our main goals. Fifteen years ago, many would have called knifemaking in Japan a “dying art”, with many older masters forging knives with very few young apprentices. Since then, the blossom of passion for knife making has blossomed among the youth, and blacksmithing now has a bright, vibrant future in Japan. Many older masters have taken on young apprentices, and some have even struck out on their own to start their own workshops. One such workshop I’m most excited about currently is Isamitsu Hamono.

    About the Shape - Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife, gyutos are a multi purpose knife with a slight meat cutting bias and “gyuto” even translates to “cow sword”. If you want one knife to do it all, This is it. The longer blade typically gives the blade a forward balance that allows it to work for you. While the blade would ideally by slid forward or back while cutting, they are also great for folks that prefer to 'rock' their knife while cutting.
