Nigara Hamono knives are the result of centuries of sword making experience, and are masterpieces of design.

According to Nigara, “The “Anmon” design was inspired by the rippling water of the Anmon falls, found on the base of the World Heritage Shirakami Mountains. Dating back to the Edo Period over 350 years ago, this Nigara Forging technique with its numerous folds, result in the ripple marked blades that are sharp and extremely durable, resistant to rusting. With each one skillfully handcrafted, no two knives are the same.”


This is a Deba, a thick heavy knife used for all steps of processing fish.

  • Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade. 
  • Do not use on hard melons or items that may torque the blade.
