The renowned Sanjo knife maker, master Tsukasa Hinoura started blacksmithing in 1975. As with a lot of the knife makers he also creates forestry tools such as the nata (which we sell), and also hunting knives. In Japan he is exceptionally famous for these items and demand is high, the knock on effect is that his kitchen knives are also incredibly hard to get hold of. Luckily during my last trip to Japan I got to meet Tsukasa san and his son Mutsumi san. From this trip we managed to bring back quite a few knives but most importantly order lots for the future.
