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 - Aogami 2 Kurouchi
The gorgeous blackened finish on these knives is retained from the forging process and, in addition to the stainless steel coating these knives have on top of their Blue #2 carbon steel core, provides a protective coating on the surface of the knife.
The Steel - Aogami (Blue) 2
Aogami 2 is an excellent mid-point carbon steel giving a wonderful combination of performance and value for money. It retains very well and is easy to sharpen.
The Model - Santoku
Similar to a Gyuto chef’s knife, the Santoku offers a large light blade with a taller profile and a flatter belly, making the knife excellent for a more ‘up and down’ chopping motion for meat, fish or vegetables. Blades vary from 160mm to 180mm. This is a great knife if you want an all rounder with shorter blade and a good weight to it.
