Manaka Hamono, located in Saitama, Japan, has been in the knife-making business since 1872.

Kisuke Manaka is the 5th generation. He is completely self-taught. With nothing but a small forge full of blacksmithing equipments and books on knife-making, Manaka-san started to teach himself how to make knives from scratch: from forge-welding to heat treatment to finishing.

Unlike other makers, Manaka-san forge-welds his own steel which is not an easy task (most blacksmiths buy pre-laminated steel). Everything is basically done in-house.

Manaka-san considers Tsukasa Hinoura-san as his mentor.
