Nakagawa for Sakai Kikumori

We are proud to introduce, as the sole North American retailer, knives done as a collaboration between Sakai Kikumori and Nakagawa Hamono. Inspired by a conversation with Bernal Cutlery’s Lisa and Josh with Sakai Kikumori, Kawamura-san of Kikumori asked what we would like to see, shirogami 1 and aogami 1 kurouchi gyutos from Nakagawa Hamono came to mind. 

These knives represent a blend of the rustic and the refined. They have a dark forge-scale ‘kurouchi’ finish and exceptionally thin grinds to support the superb forging. Nakagawa-san's smithing is characterized by thorough heat treatment with excellent heat control during forging. The result are knives that have remarkable edge formation and edge retention while remaining tough.
