Blacksmith | Daitoku
From his small workshop in Mie Prefecture Japan, Tomonori Akahata skirts the boundary of knife blacksmith and artist. He works alone, crafting each element of his knives completely by hand. From the forged blue steel blades with distinctive kurouchi finish, to the special hand carved walnut timber handles.
These knives (and hand forged cutlery) are some of the most unique items we carry, his work sells out fast with long lead times to replace.
