Jiro Nakagawa Tsuchime Gyuto 240mm Wa- Taihei Tagayasan Handle
Jiro Nakagawa is a true one-man craftsman that lives alone in the countryside. He sought out skilled craftsmen around Japan including a master sword polisher to learn the techniques of manipulating traditional materials, and has practiced the art of calligraphy for over 20 years under the master who lives in Nagano prefecture to enhance his hand-chiseling/engraving.
His unique skill sets, humility, and will to improve all of his domain as a craftsman make all Jiro forged items worth treasuring for years to come.
