Hiro: A Functional Masterpiece Worthy of its Samurai Heritage
Shun's Legacy Continues

Harkening to the bladesmithing of ancient Japan, Hiro features a gorgeous, hammered tsuchime finish upon its 64 layers of patterned Damascus. While the tsuchime finish minimizes drag, the SG2 core ensures a razor-like, 16-degree cutting edge. The charcoal and crimson Pakkawood handle is ambidextrously contoured for a comfortable and secure grip, inlaid with a Samurai family crest. In 150 hand-crafted steps, Shun Hiro has been meticulously perfected to create a balanced, agile, and functional masterpiece, worthy of its Samurai heritage.
