Sharpened by MoriHiro.

After the retirement of legendary master craftsman Kenichi Shiraki, Nakagawa-san, as Shiraki-san's disciple for almost 20 years, is heading the Shiraki Hamono (now as Nakagawa Hamono).

In fact, many of Shiraki-san's works including honyaki in the last 5 or more years were done by Nakagawa-san.

Nakagawa-san is also forging knives for some top tier lines from Sakai retailers, namely Sakai Kikumori, Sakai Jikko, and some other brands.

So K&S now is very pleased and honored to carry the latest works from Nakagawa-san, primarily in Ginsan steel with featured wide bevel, followed by more profiles and various steels in the near future.
