Forged by Gou Yoshizawa (Nigara)

Since being appointed by the domain of Tsugaru to make Japanese swords, Nigara Forging has a history of over 350 years.

As one of the few noble swordsmiths in Japan, Nigara homono has continued to preserve this art. The making of swords has been abandoned as a business item since 1965, but the same forging techniques such as welding and hammering have been kept alive in the making of  kitchen knives since then.

Sharpened by Naohito Myojin (Myojin Riki)

Naohito Myojin (明神 直人) is a young sharpener based in Kochi prefecture. While his workshop Myojin Riki Seisakusho is probably not as famous as the established brands from Sakai and Echizen, he is the sharpener behind some of the very famous knife lines in the industry; noteabley the Tetsujin brand and the 'Fujiyama' line by Konosuke.  

Handled by Sadao Nishihara (Tanaka Hamono)
Use to be the main handle maker for Shigeki Tanaka's western line, as a matter of fact, most of the famous Kazuyuki Takana R2 ironwood knives were handled by Nishihara with his signature coke-bottle-shaped western handle. K&S often contracts master Nishihara on various western handle projects because of the uber comfortable grip.
