Hymon white 2 Damascus; Made by the well-known Takahiro Nihei known for his masterful work on the Knonsuke Knives which are famous for using the finest quality steel. Here Takahiro Nihei uses white 2 steel wrapped in the soft Iron cladding. The blade is finished in a blast/ mirror Damascus finish which when caught in certain light and angles reflects a rainbow of colours, this truly feels like a piece of artwork when held. The soft iron cladding which is Damascus mirror-finished is stunningly finished with a Karin wood Wa-handle in an octagonal shape. The meaning of Hyomon in Japanese is “Ice Crest” which is truly shown when the blade is held and reflects light, it's as if the light is being shined through a prism of Ice; you see all the colours on the spectrum.
