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.
So K&S now is very pleased and honored to carry the latest works from Nakagawa-san. Initially in Ginsan steel and now in even more popular Blue1 core and damascus cladding, with featured wide bevel.
