History of Gokaden
Japanese swords were researched after every battle and were renovated to improve its effects. Furthermore, many talented blacksmiths started emerging during the late Heian to the Kamakura period and five producing districts-Yamato, Bizen, Yamashiro, Soushu, Mino-were established, each with their own style and technique in forging Japanese swords. In the Katana industry, these five areas became generically known as the “Gokaden” during the Meiji period(1868-1911)
After MASA visited these areas and he said to himself, GOKADEN would be the perfect name for his knives. His knives are reflection of traditional art of Japanese sword which hand forged by skilled craftsman, sharp as a razor and edge retention is like no other. The Japanese tradition of beauty and excellence that’s what HITACHIYA KNIVES are.
