Great kiridashi

Ikeuchi Hamono makes great knives. He is a well respected blacksmith primarily making tool knives as well as a few kitchen knives. Great price. Great product. Great service. Can't ask for much more

Excellent Knife for Leathercraft

The knife came out of the package very sharp. For my purposes, it cut leather much better than my x-acto knife with a new blade and can even be used for skiving down the thickness. After polishing the blade with some green stropping compound, it cuts even better.

Flush deal

Honed it, stropped it, flush trims like a dream for a flat blade. Really useful for scoring and push cuts.

Excellence beyond compare

The Hardwick & Son’s website was a serendipitous find for me and will continue to be my go-to website for quality tools and superb customer service. Wishing to one day visit their physical location!

  • The Kiridashi Kogatana knife is a traditional all-purpose Japanese laminated knife used for marking, trimming, & shaping woodworking & bamboo. The top of the blade has a right hand bevel edge with the back side flat & hollow ground for easy re-sharpening.

    Mr. Ikeuchi master blacksmith along with his fellow blacksmiths hand forge, grind, & sharpen these knives. White high carbon steel laminated on top with a softer layer of steel allowing the blade to be hardened to Rockwell 64. With all steel as it becomes harder & tougher, it will be more brittle & can snap in half, the soft steel lamination arrests this possibility. These knives we carry from Mr. Ikeuchi are beveled ground on one side only & flat to edge on the underside yet hollow ground as a common practice to facilitate less time in re-honing to a sharp edge.

       Hardwick & Sons is pleased to offer quality tools from Japan for the many people who desire special & well-crafted tools. The wide variety of Japanese products that we offer come from the many craftsmen & toolmakers in Japan who have a special dedication to their skillful craft & art of toolmaking.
