Goko Hamono is one of the last blacksmiths who make their knives by hand in the Chiba region more precisely in Kashiwa. These knives are forged from # 1 Shirogami steel and are coated with stainless steel giving you the advantage of carbon steel and the ease of maintenance of stainless steel. The fit and finish of these knives are excellent and have nothing to envy of other blade makers in its region.
Goko started making knives for a short time, but they quickly established themselves in the Japanese market. It has developed a solid reputation for excellent value for money.
