A butcher knife is a western kitchen knife used widely around the world to cut or trim meat. Because of the easy-to-use form, it has become an all-purpose knife used not only for cutting meat but also for fish and vegetables. Many people use a butcher knife for both professional and home use due to its handy use. Knives with molding marks and a hammer finish offer a high sense of quality and are popular around the world, and the hammer finish also has the effect of making food ingredients stick less to the knife.

Uses high-quality material

Along with a secret forging agent, steel is placed on ground iron and heated in a furnace at 1200 degrees Celsius.

The sharp cuts made with knife are sure to impress

Running water is used to cool the body to prevent frictional heat from causing the blade to soften as the tip is polished until sharp.

Since the days of Samurai.


During the early Edo Period, the city of Hirosaki was a castle town. There were over one hundred forging shops in the area. Nigara Forging is one such historical Tsugaru blacksmith shops maintaining its history and art. The Nigara Forging has kept the traditional forging techniques alive and has remained committed to high-quality blade forging for centuries. The folding and hammering of soft iron and steel produces a distinctive beauty in each knife we make.
