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.

So light - so amazing!!

Wow!! This is a wonderful blade. I was taken back a step on first holding it because of it lightness in hand. A combination thin blade and light weight handle materials I suspect. And the balance is truly outstanding!
This is a superbly made petty knife that I just can’t fault. I want another one just so I have two…but that would be kinda silly!!
So it’s onto the next Shiro Kamo Shirogam.
Many thanks to chefs-edge for their commitment in gathering some of the worlds best knives and allowing us all to own them.
Thank you 😊
