The Blue 1 damascus line by Nakagawa offers great fit & finish, excellent forging, beautiful damascus pattern and a very competitive price.
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. After the success of bringing in Nakagawa-san's popular wide-bevel Ginsan line, we are now proud to offer his professional single bevel line - Blue1 yaganiba with beautifully finished spine and choil.
