Staying modest and out of the spotlight, Mr. Kawamura produces his knives in small quantities in Sanjo, Niigata, even at the young age of 74. He has been working to perfect his artform for over 40 years, and his knives reflect the experience he carries. He completes the entire process of each knife, from forging to handle work, entirely on his own.
He prefers to utilise a core (cutting edge) of Shirogami or “White Steel”, sandwiched between 2 layers of stainless steel, which is then hammered to produce a beautifully unique finish. The knives are finished with an octagon walnut and ebony handle, and are light, durable, and a great addition to any kitchen.
