SHIMOMURA INDUSTRIAL CO., LTD. began its blacksmith business in Sanjo, one of Japan’s leading cutting tool production regions, in 1874. We started by manufacturing agricultural tools such as sickles and hoes. We further evolved the traditional Sanjo cutting tool forging techniques and currently make culinary knives, scissors and slicers mainly out of stainless steel. We aim to deliver “sharp cutting tools” to satisfy those who cook with our tools.
What a beautiful knife. The hammered pattern on the blade is not only beautiful, it helps release food when chopping. The knife is very well crafted. It’s extremely sharp and well balanced. Craftsmanship, features and eye catching good looks make this knife a great buy for the price point.
Amazing looking knife (true to the picture), you will not be disappointed! Very good quality build and definitely up to the task of being used as your main chef's knife! Shipped and arrived very quickly as well.
I got this for my boyfriend’s dad as a gift. I had to open it and see the item first. It was packaged well, and they even wrapped up the box of the knife as well with a cute bow! The package even had a vanilla scent to it which I enjoyed. Opening up the box, inside it was packaged neatly and seeing the knife, it was even more stunning than the pictures. From the handle to the actual blade it self - gorgeous. Definitely an unforgettable shopping experience. If I ever need something of this sort again, would 100% purchase from here again.
