1. A method of producing metal particles, comprising:

  • jetting out a metal salt solution and a reducing agent solution from respective nozzles to a mixing chamber, to give a mixed reaction solution thereof; and

    discharging the mixed reaction solution from a discharging port having a diameter smaller than a diameter of the mixing chamber, wherein one of the metal salt solution and the reducing agent solution is made into straightly-going flow, the straightly-going flow is jetted from a nozzle having a diameter smaller than the diameter of the mixing chamber to the mixing chamber, and the other solution is jetted out, in the form of orthogonal flow which is substantially orthogonal to the straightly-going flow, to a position before a position where eddy viscosity generated by jetting the straightly-going flow into the mixing chamber would be maximum.
