The Blacksmith - Seisuke Hamono

 

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) Super

Aogami Super is an excellent top end carbon steel giving a wonderful combination of performance and maintenance. It retains very well and is easy to sharpen.

The Model - 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.
