Shiro Kamo

Regular price £155.00 Sale

Shiro Kamo is a famous Blacksmith from the Takefu Knife Village, the epicentre of premium knife makers in the Echizen region. 

A masterful and skillful Blacksmith making knives of various types using traditional techniques and producing premium quality time after time. 

Kurouchi roughly translates at 'blacksmith's finish', and retains some of the residue of the forging process. This allows the knives to be cheaper, as some of the production process is removed, and also provides protection to the blade reducing the risk of corrosion. Not only that, but it is a stunning finish, and is very desirable right now.
