ABOUT SHIRO KAMO- While his popularity outside Japan continues to grow, Shiro Kamo is one of the top-tier blacksmiths of Japan. The working President of the Takefu Knife Village Cooperative, he was awarded the ‘Master of Traditional Crafts’ at the young age of 45. He still has many years of perfecting his craft ahead of him.
His knives feature consistently even and thin grinds, clean blade finishes and fantastic attention to detail, not to mention the cutting performance to match. These are paired with octagon walnut handles.
STEEL BREAKDOWN – White Steel is the purest of the Japanese High Carbon Steels made by Hitachi Metals. It can be forged to extremely high hardness, sharpened extremely easily (even for novices), and takes a scalpel like edge. It is known to be one of the easiest steel to get blazing sharp.
It is highly reactive as it contains next to no stainless elements, so needs a little extra care and maintenance to stay pristine. However if maintained well, knives of this steel are incredibly rewarding to use.
- Washing – Dry your knives as soon as possible after washing and do not leave them wet for extended periods of time. Store in a cool, dry place. No dishwasher use!.
- Cutting – Cut on wood chopping boards only, and do not hit/cut/chop frozen vegetables, bones, or hard objects, as the blade can chip or break.
- Sharpening – We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. We have a full range of sharpening tools here.
