New! Collaboration Knives by Tosa Blacksmith, Kosuke Muneishi & Seki Custom Knifemaker, Fumio Inagaki 
 
For years, we have been working for a project to produce the most durable forged blades using Japanese traditional "Tansetsu Warikomi" (鍛接割込) forge welding method, that requires long experienced special skills to wrap insert Hagane hard cutting steel (鋼) into Nantetsu soft steel (母材).

For this forging work, we chose the Tosa Blacksmith, Kosuke Muneishi, the 3rd generation of Muneishi Blacksmith family. He uses 40mm wide x 19mm thick Nantetsu soft steel forged 20 layers for outer base steel, and cut split by chisel Tagane and insert Aogami #2 (Hitachi Blue steel) cutting Hagane core into the split. Then, the repeated hammer hot forging makes two different steels bonding together and creates beautiful Damascus patterns. This is a time consuming process with skilled technology, and makes the most durable multi-layered blade to bending and breaking.

For the blade polishing and putting handle work, we chose Seki Custom Knifemaker, Fumio Inagaki. We have searched and imported rare Exotic wood materials for the handles. It took about a year to receive forged blade blanks from Master Muneichi, and then 3 months for Mr. Inagaki to finish the knives and sheaths. This collaboration work has combined Japanese traditional forged blade and western style handle, resulting a practical and durable knives for hard use. Available in small EDC knife to a large Bowie.
