The Hado G3N is a hand-forged ginsanko blade with an octagonal burnt oak handle, sealed with a thin clear urushi lacquer coating.

This series is hand ground at the Hado sharpening workshop in Sakai, Japan and forged by Satoshi Nakagawa in Sakai. Nakagawa-san's ginsanko is one of the best we have found, with a great combination of edge life fine edge formation similar to a carbon steel like shirogami, yet tough and with good stain resistance. 

Nakagawa-san's knives are characterized by excellent heat control during forging and a very thorough heat treatment, creating knives that have superb edge formation and edge life with good toughness. Nakagawa-san's reputation as one of a few blacksmiths in Sakai to forge Ginsanko and VG10 stainless steels with excellent edge life and toughness is well earned. His ginsanko is one of the best we have used and sharpened - really superb edge life, toughness, and edge formation.
