Nigara Knives

Nigara Hamono has been a noted over the years ever since they received official appointment by the Tsugaru Clan more than 350 years ago. Every Since then, there blacksmithing techniques have been passed down through generations. They forge each and every knife by hand and pay upmost attention to detail.


The Blade is forged with Aogami Super/Blue Super Carbon Steel. It is an improved version of Aogami # 1. The steel has amazing edge holding capabilities and the edge can be refined to extreme sharpness. The Aogami Super Steel Core is Cladded in Stainless steel to easy maintenance on the blade. The Aogami Super cutting edge is reactive and will develop a great looking patina if cared for properly. Always make sure to wash and dry your knife properly after use.


The petty, often referred to as a utility knife is a smaller knife used for delicate tasks such as cutting herbs as well as smaller fruits and vegetables.


Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
