Hounen Kihan

Hounen Kihan is a bladesmith based in Hyogo, Japan, that prioritizes high-quality materials. They make all of their blades from the finest high-carbon cutlery steels and many from yasugi aogami - Japan's premier blade steel.

The core of their product line is their wide range of sickles for various applications such as harvesting, weeding, and grass-cutting. But their axes, hatchets, pruning shears, and chef knives are produced to the same exceptional standard they have for all of their blades.
