Hitohira is our brand new supplier that has been absolutely killing it. The president, Mr. Hokuto Aizawa, has traveled the world in his mid-20s and saw firsthand how Japanese kitchen knives are adored throughout the northern hemisphere and decided to make the products even more accessible. Now, Hitohira brings many new and old favourites back into our shelves with consistency, making our clients ever happier.
For Hitohira all lines, there are abbreviations and pseudonyms to organize and identify the products. Often, we are not at liberty to publicly disclose these makers' actual names. If you have any questions about the individual craftsman involved, send us an email, and we can do our best to clarify within our limits.
A small santoku like this gives a lot of utility on the cutting board without sacrificing too much of the length. We have found this shape to be a great addition to a set as it gives more chopping ability than utility/petty blades of a similar length. Also, the rounded heel and the tip make this shape a bit easier to approach: we have nicked our hands and fingers on the tips and the corners of other knives more than we liked to admit..
