During years of handcrafting knives, they have developed unique skills and knowledge, which have been passed from generation to generation. Hinoura’s unique bladesmithing techniques allow producing knives that will keep fine edges longer than any other knife on the market. Hinoura’s family is dedicated to producing a large variety of kitchen knives but also other edge tools for gardening, agriculture and forestry.
Mutsumi Hinoura has been training and working with his father, master smith Tsukasa Hinoura, since 2001, in Sanjo. His knives are similar, with good distal tapers and wide kiriba style bevels, and really wonderful heat treatments. They both have a lot of experience with hunting and outdoor knives, and their kitchen knives carry some of the same qualities of toughness.
Please note, that each knife is unique as it has slightly different appearance and size because the blade is handcrafted and the handle is a stabilised natural maple wood in shades of blue and green.
