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-4 Small Tanto Hunter 

Master Yamamoto selected SG-II, a reputable Japanese Powdered High Speed Tool Steel, for this blade because it offers extra high cutting performance. The SG-II Damascus blade has a unique Hammered texture and a compact size, which makes it handy and useful. The knife has a Drop Point Blade and a forged Integral Handle, which is decorated with the same hammered texture. The contrasting black Para-Cord wrap and lanyard hole add further practicality and style. A handcrafted leather sheath, with belt loop, is also included with the knife.
