Gihei Hamono is located in Sanjo, Niigata and is run by Atsushi and Takashi Hosokawa. Gihei hamono not only works in traditional Hitachi steels but also works with newer  high performance steels such as HAP40 and SLD tool steels. Gihei are always praised for their excellent heat treatment and ability to hold and edge. 50/50 ground with exposed wide bevel, thin at the edge but low enough grind to provide very nice food release.
