Satoshi Nakagawa-san is the disciple of master blacksmith Kenichi Shiraki-san (retired in 2017). He has trained under Shiraki-san for 16 years and was at the helm of Shiraki Hamono since 2015 when his master was ill. In April 2021, he decided to open his own workshop: Nakagawa Hamono.

At such a relatively young age, he is one of the most talented smiths out there who can forge various steels like shirogami, aogami as well as stainless ones like VG10 and Ginsanko. In addition to laminated blades, Nakagawa-san also makes honyaki knives. We are excited to add some more Nakagawa-san's extremely well-forged blades in our lineup.
