"Dignified elegance". These words describe Custom Knife Maker Hiroshi Saito's dedicated custom works.
At the Seki Outdoor Knife Show in October 2014, I fell in love with this sophisticated handmade knife collection. When I picked this knife up and had a closer look, I saw that every little detail had been carefully taken care of, it had a perfect grip and balance, overall it was the fruit of its creator's spirit and philosophy.
Hiroshi Saito, the maker of this knife, has dedicated many long years to creating custom knives. The making process for custom knives is very different from that of factory knives, which use many standardized, automated processes. Making custom knives requires effort, and the value of the final product lies in how well the product reflects the creator's philosophy and the perfection of their skills.
