HADO Sumi White #2 Ko-Bunka
HADO knives are produced in Sakai in collaboration with master blacksmiths Yoshikazu Tanaka and Shogo Yamatsuka. HADO knives are sharpened by in house sharpener Maruyama-san who utilizes a wide style grind that has great symmetry and consistency. The fit and finish on all of HADO knives is superb with no detail spared.
The HADO Sumi series is forged by Yoshikazu Tanaka from Shirogami #2 steel laminated in soft iron. The blade face is left with kurouchi and natural texture from forging. Tanaka san white steel has a silky sharpening feel and incredible sharpness. The octagonal handle is with natural lacquered cherry bark that not only looks incredible but has a natural and grippy feeling in hand. Every handle is one of a kind.
