Made by Shizu Hamono Co. in Seki, Gifu this paring knife was inspired by the mountains of Gifu and the Handicraft of Origami. 


Designed by British designer and managing director Sebastian Conran. The knives feature faceted walnut handles inspired by the folded paper forms of origami, ergonomically optimised for the push cut as well as the pull slice; they are also designed to be used in either the left or right hand. This combined with the pattern created by folding 30 layers of Damascus steel, results in a beautiful knife that will serve chefs for decades.

Shizu Hamono Co., Ltd. was born in Showa 55, inheriting the superior techniques and traditions of sword masters from the Kamakura period. They have superior technology, blended with intricate manufacturing.
