Located in the city of Miki, Japan, Misuzu Hamono is known as the first forge to forge non-rust-resistant carbon steel with stainless steel outer layers (Sanmai technique) in 1946 by the founder Mr.Suzuki Shinji. Due to the special construction of the blades, the edge can be made extremely sharp and the stainless steel outer layer can still protect the steel against corrosion and damage.
mr. Miyawaki, the third generation of Misuzu Hamono in his fifties, was trained in the famous knife town of Sakai until 2005 and became the chief artisan of Misuzu Hamono in 2006.
