Tsuruhime(鶴姫) is our brand name.  "Tsuru" (鶴) means "crane" in English, and "Hime" (姫) means "princess."  Tsuruhime is a fictional character from an ancient Japanese tale.

The story of Tsuruhime is often interpreted as a symbol of loyalty, love, and beauty. Additionally, in Japanese culture, the crane symbolizes longevity and happiness.

We chose the brand name Tsuruhime for our knives, hoping they would be long-loved and used by our customers.

Tosa City in Kochi Prefecture is renowned for its Kurouchi finish, and this knife is also manufactured by the skilled craftsmen of Tosa City.

Kurouchi knives are mostly handcrafted, each possessing a unique texture. Due to this, every knife has its individuality, reflecting the artisan's skills.

These characteristics make Kurouchi knives popular among knife collectors and professional chefs, offering both functionality and beauty.
