Yamamoto Haken

"Hide" knives are widely used and trusted by Japanese professional chefs throughout the Kansai region of Japan, a place known for its rich food culture. They are certified craftsmen and draw on a collective 94 years of experience.
At Yamamoto Haken, visitors can see the process of "sharpening and straightening a blade," "fixing a handle to a knife," and "engraving a name on knife."
