Get this limited edition Mutsumi Hinoura Petty 135mm with Shirogami #2 steel core and stainless cladding with Kurouchi finish. HRC 63-64.  Highly recommended for busy cooks and equally great as a home knife. Shirogami #2 is very responsive to sharpening stones, taking an extremely fine, biting edge easily. With the soft iron cladding, Hinoura-san’s shirogami knives are wonderful to thin as well. Shirogami and iron are both reactive, keep these dry when not in use to avoid rust. Please remember that the core is not stainless and should be dried after use (check our maintenance tips here).  It will develop a dark patina with normal use, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive or sharpening.

Please note, that each knife has slightly different appearance and size because the blade is hand-crafted and the handle is a natural stabilised wood in octagonal shape.

Hancrafted in Japan

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.

    First, these girls sell a lot of great knives and other kitchenware. Secondly, they are pleasure to work with. I inadvertently order a knife that was larger than I want. When I emailed, they sent me the right one without waiting for the unwanted one to return. No questions asked. I just love the craftsmanship of this knife. The handle is already beautiful on its own but the blade … it just completes the masterpiece.
