Fan Out in collaboration with Echigo Sanjo tradition knife blacksmith Hinoura Tsukasa have created a range of knives “like jewellery”. Each knife is hand forged with ‘Gobi’ Damascus steel a combination or brass, copper and stainless steel. Every knife being hand forged by Mr Hinoura is unique and different. Whilst looking amazing, all these knives contain Shirogami cores, giving the best possible performance.
Hinoura Tsukasa being one of the most famous blacksmiths in Japan, is a 3rd generation blacksmith from Niigata. Mr Hinoura creates immaculate knives with recognisable patterns in the Damascus layer. Mr Hinoura’s knives are made to be perfect, with no distortions or gaps. Mr Hinoura uses very traditional techniques, from forging to hand sharpening, making one of his knives takes a tremendous amount of time and his knives are hard to get hold of. His knives are highly sought after in Japan and Europe.
