Care Instruction
  1. Don't cut hard things! Japanese knives are brittle so bone hacking is a NO NO!
  2. Wash with netural detergent after use, and wipe dry;
  3. Please don't wash knife with dishwasher, it will damage the wood handle;
  4. Be careful not to leave the knife close to a heat source for a long time;
  5. It is a lot more dangerous to cut with a blunt knife than a sharp knife!
  6. It is best to sharpen a Japanese knife regularly on a waterstone.

Nigara Anmon (暗紋) SG2 Damascus Gyuto 210/240/270mm

From $569.95

Introduced in late 2021, Nigara SG2 Anmon line features the state-of-the-art Super Gold 2 powdered steel with excellent edge retention, toughness and extreme sharpness, along with their signature Anmon (raindrop damascus) pattern.


Nigara Hamono is gaining a lot of popularity recently, thanks to their superior cutting performance, great artistics and more than reasonable pricing. 

At the moment, the most popular line by Nigara is their Kurouchi SG2 line, featuring rustic hand forged Kurouchi hammered pattern, high performances Super Gold 2 powdered steel by Takefu Special Steel, with a comfortable price range between $300 to $500 range.

What really makes Nigara standout from the other makers, is their Anmon damascus line, with the uniquely beautiful, yet hard to forge ringdrop damascus pattern. Their blue 2 subseries are only found in their single bevel offerings, while the SRS-13 subline is super hard to obtain and expensive.

In late 2021, Nigara enhanced their product line by combining the much easier-to-obtain SG2 steel with their Anmon pattern resulting in some truly stunning knives!

Knives and Stones is proud to be among the first retailers to launch the Nigara SG2 Anmon line.
