The Tsubame series is made by Kataoka hamono of Niigata, Japan. Kataoka hamono, founded in 1958, is also the maker of the Brieto and Tamahagane brands which are popular in the Japanese domestic market.

If you want a wa-gyuto that is hygienic, this is the answer. The handle is made of elastomer resin with an antibacterial agent called Novalon AGZ330. The handle feels good in the hand thanks to its rubber-like properties. It is also heat-resistant and can withstand temperatures up to 115C. This is a practical, affordable, and reliable petty knife; a true bang-for-the-buck.
