Misuzu is a small family run blacksmith located in Miki within the Hyogo prefecture.  They are specifically known for the Misuzu Hamono knife which is a versatile knife invented by the founder, Shinji Suzuki, in 1946. The current blacksmith, Yamato Miyawaki, married into the family and is now the third-generation knife maker. All knives are made by him personally. Since they are all hand-made, he can only make a limited amount each month.
