I am proud to offer my loyal customers kata-ha blades from Japan's finest kata-ha bladesmith Mr Kenichi Shiraki. Carter Cutlery named this brand "Shiro", which is the Kanji character chiseled into the blade. We chose "Shiro" for many reasons; it means "White" which is Murray and Mr. Shiraki's steel of choice, it is the symbol for purity, implies simple elegance and is also the first kanji character of Mr. Shiraki's name!
As an expert in my own field of neck knives and three-layer laminate kitchen knives, I can assure you that you will not find better kata-ha Japanese knives anywhere, at any price!
