Mutsumi Hinoura Nashiji Nakiri 165mm Shirogami Iron Clad #2

Blacksmith Mutsumi Hinoura and his father Mr. Tsukasa mainly forge Shirogami White steel #2 in Sanjo City Niigata Prefecture. His father prefers to forge white #2 carbon steel knives because the steel is sharper than stainless steel knives. Thus Mr. Mutsumi also offers white #2 knives mainly.

In late Meiji Era, about 100 years ago, their first generation Shintaro started business as a sickle smith. Mr. Tsukasa decided to be a blacksmith in 1978. Mr. Mutsumi too in 2001. Mr. Tsukasa studied metallurgy with self taught and his microscope.

Niigata Sanjyo city is well known as producer of cutlery in Japan. There aren’t many blacksmiths who can forge kitchen knives in the city now.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Love it, Mutsumi’s sharpness is one and only. I’ve got petty 150mm sometime ago and now I got nakiri to complete my set. Money well spent.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    What a beautiful product!
