The Blacksmith

Nigara Hamono is located in Hirosaki which is a city at the very northern tip of the main island of Honshu. Their family has a 350 year old history of making knives and swords and more recently has expanded into structural steel beams for use in construction. Tsuyoshi Yoshizawa stands as the 8th generation smith in the lineage of blacksmiths at Nigara Hamono and creates knives with his younger brother and two other craftsman. 

We are so excited to be able to offer these gorgeous knives to our customers. They are very thin behind the edge and have great blade geometry which contributes to an absolutely stunning cutting feel. The VG-10 stainless steel will give these knives very good edge retention and will make these knives super easy to care for. Last, but maybe most exciting, is the amazing price! These knives are great bang for your buck knives and make a fantastic gift. 


The Knife

The petty is the Japanese equivalent of the western style paring knife. They're usually a little longer and I could never go back after using one. The idea is all the on board work is done with your gyuto or chef knife and everything in hand is done with the petty. Not limited to capping strawberries, peeling, turning, or coring veggies, and smaller butchery tasks like chicken, small fish, or deboning a pork shoulder.


Knife Care (Stainless Steel)

  • Although this knife is made from stainless steel we do still encourage our customers to keep their knives as dry and clean as possible.
  • NO DISHWASHER - the high heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
