Shigefusa is a small forge in Sanjo, Japan run by the Iizuka family. Their elegant knives are mainly made using hand tools (except for the mechanical forging hammers). To grind their knives and establish geometry, a hand tool called "sen" is used to 'scrape' off some millimeters of metal; In contrast, most makers use a grinding wheel to do that. ​


It takes time and patience to create such knives; just a few hundred Shigefusa knives are made every year. The waiting time can even extend up to five years!​
