Blacksmith Mutsumi Hinoura and his father Tsukasa Hinoura-san 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 Mutsumi-san also offers white #2 knives mainly.

In the late Meiji Era, about 100 years ago, their first-generation Shintaro started a business as a sickle smith. Mr Tsukasa decided to be a blacksmith in 1978, in 2001 his son followed. Tsukasa-san studied metallurgy by himself and his microscope.

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

    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.
