SEKI KANETSUGU CUTLERY CO., LTD
Hamaguri 3-Piece Knife Set
This three-piece knife set includes a utility knife, bread knife, and chef’s knife - the perfect trio for any modern-day kitchen! The design of these kitchen knives is both modern and timeless. The blade is made by master craftsmen who use both heat treating and sub-zero cooling techniques to forge a high-carbon stainless-steel hamaguri (clam-shaped) blade inspired by samurai swords. The aluminum handle is rust and rot-resistant, as well as heptagonal shaped to fit perfectly in one’s hand. You will be able to feel the difference in having secure control and balance when cutting with these sharp and durable knives.
About the Maker
For more than 170 years, Kanetsugu has been renowned for their Samurai sword craftsmanship. Since 1849 their traditions have been passed down through legendary bladesmiths. When the demand for Samurai swords fell after 1870, Kanetsugu shifted their focus to kitchen knives but were sure to continue incorporating their passed-down skills. This is shown through their unique hamaguri (clam-shaped) blade which ensures razor sharpness as well as durability. Overall, the combination of cutting-edge (pun intended) technology, commitment to tradition, and master craftsmen results in an elegant powerful knife that is second to none.
