Introducing

Nao Yamamoto

Nao Yamamoto is an award-winning master blacksmith, based in, Echizen in Fukui Prefecture. Characterised by thick distal tapers, matte kurouchi and rustic tsuchime patterns, his blades are instantly recognisable. Former apprentice of the late blacksmith Masami Asai, Yamamoto has taken on his master’s mantle and continues to produce knives under the Asai name.

Blade Type

The Petty knife, a quintessential tool in Japanese cuisine, is a smaller utility knife used for precise, delicate tasks. Often considered a smaller sibling to the chef's knife, it excels in hand-held tasks like peeling, trimming, and intricate cutting. Its versatility makes it an essential for detailed culinary work.

Steel Type

Blue Steel is a traditional, high-carbon steel made by Hitachi Metals in Japan. It is the favourite steel of many knife makers and chefs across the world for it’s fantastic edge holding ability, toughness, and ease of sharpening. It contains few stainless elements, and as such will develop a patina, and may develop rust spots if left wet after use.
