Bannou Knife

(1 customer review)



Product Description

This Bannou knife is one of the newest knife designs from the Nagao Kanekoma Factory in Miki-shi, Hyogo, Japan (maker of the Higonokami). It is a universal/all purpose knife that can be used for anything: from food preparation to woodworking, etc. It’s made of Shirogami/White Steel (high carbon steel) in the sanmai (warikomi) construction.

The sheath is wrapped in kimono fabric and the tang/handle is wrapped in paracord. The kimono fabric and paracord come in random colors and design. So no two bannou knives are alike. This means, we only have one of each designs and colors.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the nature of the production of this knife, there will be some slight imperfections on the blade.

    I ordered a design #4 Bannou Knife on 13 May 2021 and I received my cute but insanely sharp knife thru LBC today (5 days later).. This is my first purchase from Geisha’s Blade and I was a bit apprehensive that I might get cheap Chinese blade while I was opening my package. All my fears were completely gone when I held my Bannou in my hand. It is very beautifully made and is very sharp. Its blade is indeed Sanmai similar to the Cold Steel Master Tanto I got in 2004 but this one is obviously manually made by a master blade smith, not machine made. This was a very fulfilling experience and I am eagerly looking my next purchase. Thank you very much Geisha’s Blade!
