Shigefusa is probably one of Sanjo's best known and respected cutlers in Niigata, Japan. Izuka-san, the man behind the name Shigefusa, makes some of the world's most sought-after knives.

 

Izuka-san has a very impressive resume for a blacksmith. He began his training with Kosuke Iwasaki where he learned basic techniques and a more scientific approach to steel. After learning what he could, he apprenticed with the legendary Nagashima-san who taught him how to make kitchen knives.

 

Knives made in Shigefusa require a lot of patience and time. Izuka-san does not buy any sanmei steel, preferring to forge and weld everything himself. He even makes his own damask or suminagashi steel the Kitaeji, which most blacksmiths do not. Like his first master, Kosuke-san, he prefers to use Swedish carbon steel. According to them, it's the closest thing to tamahagane you can get, unless you make the steel yourself.
