Seisuke Hamono is a Japanese knife brand with shops in Tokyo and Portland (USA). Their knives are produced by different blacksmiths, each specialising in a different range of knives.
We have carefully selected some of the best ranges offered which all sit at superb price-points offering excellent value for money
The Range - Hammered with Blue Handle
The Hammered Swedish steel range brings the classic looks of a Japanese knife coupled with a western handle to give it a more familiar feel.
The Steel - AUS10 Stainless Steel
This range is made using AUS10 stainless steel. AUS10 is very similar to VG10 offering the perfect mid-point in stainless steel with amazing sharpness out of the box, excellent retention and easy maintenance.
The Model - Kiritsuke Gyuto
The Gyuto is a multi-purpose, large bladed knife that you can use for almost everything. Typically these are light strong knives which range from 180mm to 240mm normally (although sometimes longer), with 210mm being the most common and popular size due to it's sweet spot of length for larger tasks but excellent agility. Longer knives tend to be used more for high volume tasks in professional kitchens where 240mm and even 270mm are popular. 180mm is popular for smaller home kitchen tasks too.
The blade profile is great for cutting in a rocking type motion. If you are looking for one knife, this is the most versatile.
Kiritsuke is simply an angled finish at the tip as opposed to the more rounded end of a traditional Santoku.
