Nigara Anmon Kiridashi #1

Sold out

A very beautiful Kiridashi from Nigara Hamono’s Anmom series. This batch is from old stock and the type of metal is unknown. 

The "Anmon" design was inspired by the rippling water of the Anmon Waterfalls, cascading from the foot of the World Heritage Shirakami Mountains adjacent to the city of Hirosaki. The ripple design on the knife comes only after forging 25 layers of steel, resulting in a sharp and durable blade, resistant to rust. No two blades have the same markings, as each is made carefully by hand.


The Japanese Kiridashi is used for smaller tasks including culinary, wood, and leather working. I use mine continuously in my workshop.
