About the Shape -Much like a Bunka, the Kiritsuke is a more bad-ass chef's knife of sorts. They combine the flat, sliding edge of a Nakiri perfectly with the length and slight curvature of a traditional chef's knife. The added steel at the tip allows them to cut more effectively, with less effort on your part.
About Nigara Hamono -Nigara-san is a relatively new knifemaker out of Aomori prefecture, but they are not new as a company. The company has been around for over 350 years, tracing back to their swordsmith ancestors. Knifemaking is a small part of what they do; they also produce large steel beams and such for buildings! Go Yoshizawa, age 35, is a young blacksmith who is the company president's son and has decided to go back to their blacksmithing roots. He now makes unique and stunning tsuchime knives and some hand-folded Damascus.
