Handsome knives produced by a handsome father and son
HINOURA HAMONO

Founded in 1905. They produce knives using traditional Japanese artistry, overseeing the entire manufacturing process themselves. As a factory that can forge any type of knife, they receive numerous orders from around the world for unusually shaped designs. Rather than expand their repertoire, they strive to acquire their customer's trust. In 2012, Tsukasa Hinoura was acknowledged as a traditional craftsman by Japanese government. During the festival, they will demonstrate the traditional steel forging process called Haganetsuke.
