Haruki Miyazaki-san, born in 1985, is a young blacksmith from Goto, Nagasaki. For five years, he apprenticed under Toshio Ooba-san who is known for his hakata knives (a regional variation of the bunka). After the apprenticeship, he travelled all over Japan to gain some more knowledge from other blacksmiths. Miyazaki-san also learned from the famous blacksmith Yukinori Shirataka-san (†2017) who was considered a living national treasure.

In 2011, he finally decided to open his own workshop. He makes various knives using aogami#2, shirogami#2, aogami super, and ginsan. He is also known for his "Tsubaki knife" or the hakata.
