伝統工芸士Dentoukougeishi are “Traditional Master Craftsmen” that have been recognized and certified by the Japanese “Ministry of International Trade & Industry”. This prestigious title was awarded to Forge-Master Nao Yamamoto, of Takefu City, in the year 2020 for his decades of hard work and extensive experience in traditional knife forging and handcrafting methods.

His knives are simple, functional and traditionally hammer forged. We can feel his passion, his desire for originality and his careful consideration of the user’s needs and perspective. 

NY-2 Black 和 Utility Knife is a unique Kurouchi ("Black Forged") Japanese-style Utility Knife. To ensure high cutting performance, Master Yamamoto decided to make the Damascus steel blade with Hitachi White Steel No.2, a very pure Japanese Traditional Carbon Steel. The Integral Handle is well contoured and offers a fine grip. A handcrafted leather sheath, with belt loop, is also included with the knife.
